This classic mountain walking loop starts from the Springs on kunanyi / Mt Wellington. The small group will visit five of the most celebrated huts on the mountain. The first stop will be Sphinx Rock for some bird watching before visiting a number of huts including a rest at Junction Cabin with a BBQ lunch at the Chalet.
