Tree Trunk Gorge is infamous among elite level kayakers, where the whole Tongarirro River thunders through a tight bedrock gorge.

Canyoners can get a taste of the beauty of this gorge by abseiling in just below the last waterfall. Its a mesmerising place…

Gets a v4 for the length of pitch >30m and a second star for sheer beauty!
