2 December Exploring the Kahurangi National Park

Exploring the Kahurangi National Park

In January, Russell Cooke and ten other TTC members visited Kahurangi National Park, combining an exploration of the 1000 acre plateau with a walk along the length of the Matiri Range. Challenges faced by the party included getting up the side of the “Haystack” using a rope, and negotiating a razor-back section of the Matiri Range.

3 February The Manaslu Trek

The Manaslu Trek

Opened in 1992 and now becoming increasingly popular with trekkers, the 14-day Manaslu Trek around the world’s eighth highest peak (8,156m) is a great alternative to the Annapurna Circuit, with all the elements of other treks in Nepal: teahouse accommodation, monasteries, Hindu and Buddhist culture, raging rivers, precarious bridges, and majestic mountain scenery. In 2012, Wayne and Mary Perkins walked the Manaslu Circuit, with a side trip up the Tsum Valley.
