The “Total Time” is my time in Jan which includes breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea time. That day was rainy and windy and the track was muddy and slippy. If you walk on average 3.5km/h plus 90 min stop then the total time will be around 7.5 hrs. Think about the time if you carry a big hiking bag.
