YOU CAN NOW CLIMB THE WORLD'S HIGHEST VIA FERRATA WATERFALL CLIMB
It’s wild, wet and 450 metres high – Wildwire Wanaka’s Lord of the Rungs is the world’s highest via ferrata waterfall climb and New Zealand’s newest adventure thrill.
Alongside the spectacular Twin Falls shooting down a sheer rocky hillside, near the South Island alpine resort town of Wanaka, the via ferrata system of rungs and cables rises a near perpendicular 450m above the valley floor taking climbers on a 6 to 7-hour adventure that ends with a heli flight descent.
The route to the top follows a kilometre of cables, weaving over, above and behind the waterfalls, and crosses a 35-metre Tyrolean traverse* using a pulley. Add the breathtaking backdrop of sweeping views to the valley below and the surrounding mountains to the exhilaration of being on a mountainside, and there’s drama at every twist and turn.
