General Discussion / Arowhana

I was wondering if Arowhana could be added to the 'possibles' list. It's a rugged little stand-alone peak [1440m] on the Eastern edge of the Raukumara Range in the NE of the NI. The Mata River, Waipaoa River and a tributary of the Motu River all have their sources on it's slopes. It's a 2hr drive from Gisborne via the Mangatu Forest and has sub-alpine vegetation growing on it. It's a steady climb up to the large,flat top where there are a number of communication towers. There are great views of the hinterland of Gisborne and on a fine day views out to the Bay of Plenty.
It also features in the Maori legend of Rongokako  [Te Tapuwae o Rongokako].
A great day trip. Map Y16 Tauwhareparae.
