This is an amazing track due to the season, still some snow near the peak but not too much, mixing up with the bushes to create an illusion of poka dots mountain. Absolutely gorgeous.

On top of the world at Isthmus Peak, New Zealand – Lines of Escape

Isthmus Peak is memorable thanks to these views, but, for me, I can’t help but also instantly think of the variety of terrains this hike leads you on. There’s everything from grass to fine soil to rocks – hence my warning about bringing along good, sturdy shoes. Also, once you leave the sheep and paddocks behind, this is when Isthmus Peak becomes a lot more challenging. Expect steep gradients and long, long (LONG) uphills. I used to hike a lot with my Dad when I lived in South Africa, and I haven’t taken on a hike as challenging as Isthmus Peak since those regular hiking days.
