    Pirongia off track lake

    Last weekend, bumped into some hunters on Mt Pirongia (Waikato) and mentioned they had come across a lake on the mountain.

    Has anyone heard of or have seen this mysterious lake on their travels?

    Would love to hear from anyone!

    I haven't done a huge amount of exploring off track up there but I've found a swampy area before, maybe a spot like that was flooded with all the recent rain. What area were you in? I presume they would of been hunting goats or pigs since the fallow are pretty localised and I don't think there's many reds, did they say?

    Did a one day hike to the summit and back (long day) there was what i describe as a 'swamp' just after the pyramid cone 'thingy'....wouldn't call it a lake though!!!!!!!
    While I might not be as good as I once was, Im as good once as I ever was!

    Auckland, until I can escape south....to the Mainland.
    Got 1080'd a couple of years ago from memory.
    Used to be a few reds around.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !
