Image: Karl Blass | DOC



The Takitimu Mountains are an impressive landform that provides opportunities for tramping, hunting and fishing amongst attractive open beech forest, tussock and screes.

The mountains are obvious from most places in Southland, particularly during winter when the tops are covered in snow.
