OK – it isn’t really called Mount Perspiring – it is Mount Aspiring and we walked 775m to view its summit today. Total distance covered in today’s walk was 15kms and we felt it at the end of the walk `as it was very steep in places. This walk gets a “hard” category in the walking trails booklet – we saw what they meant!
The views at the top were awesome though and worth the climb.
We ate an early dinner at Relishes Café – www.relishescafe.co.nz. They serve seasonal local produce and have a contemporary twist to their menu. We enjoyed our meal here before walking the 45 minutes back to our chalet – it would have been nicer to have been closer to town tonight!
