The Forgotten Highway

The Forgotten World Highway is a fantastic adventure option for driving to New Plymouth. It wriggles its way over four mountain saddles, through an eerie one-lane tunnel and along a sinuous river gorge. The only significant settlement on the way is 'The Republic of Whangamomona' with it's historic hotel, famous for it's hospitality.
