The “Total Time” is my time at the last day 2016 which includes photo shooting and lunch time. That day was fine and the tracks were good. If you walk on average 3.5 km/h plus 60 min stop then the total time will be around 7 hrs.

Last walk in 2016. An easy relax and pleasure walk before The Goat Tongariro trail running next day (2017 first day first run!). While my friend Ronald Chen was running U2U !
