It's worth a wander around, even if you're not feeling confident enough to climb, as it's ethereal beauty was named one of the spiritual centres of the universe. The area is of special cultural, spiritual and historical significance to Ngai Tahu who named it Kura Tawhiti (treasure from afar). Everyone visiting this place is enchanted.
