I’m leading a club trip to Mole tops in Nelson Lakes over Labour weekend.
I’m seeking advice from people who have done the trip. In particular, the South Island weekend tramps book has this trip starting at Mataki Lodge. However, there is also a route from D’Urville Hut at the head of Lake Rotoroa. This looks like it should be the more pleasant way to go.
Does anyone have any views on this and other aspects of the trip? (eg, is it better to camp on the tops or stay at Mole Hut?
