(07) 384 7106




This 12-bunk hut sits in the Waipakihi River Valley, part of the Kaimanawa Forest Park. Fees apply. Bookings not required - first come, first served. Facilities include heating, mattresses, non-flush toilets and water (not treated - boil before use). Reach the hut through the river valley itself, or via the Urchin and Umukarikari tracks. The hut is made up of a central kitchen area with wood burner, table and sink with internal water; and a bunk room sleeping six to either side. From the front veranda there are great views down the river valley, and out over the sparse, alpine environment of the Kaimanawa range tops. Before you go, buy 1 Standard Hut Ticket (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put this in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass that gives unlimited use at most Standard and Serviced huts for a 6 or 12-month period.
