Hinemoa’s Needle

Hinemoa’s Needle marks the end of a massive escarpment of Te Horohoroinga o nga ringa o Kahumatamomoe—where Tutanekai washed his hands after burying bones.

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

The mountain is cloaked in native bush, but over-run by predators.

Beyond, a quilt of farmland stretches out from Horohoro toward Reporoa along the Wai-o-Tapu, an important tributary of the Waikato River.
