Good work, Howie. Got any more in the rucksack?
Thanks dadndave! Maybe one more ...
Nice page and great pics. Got any links or phone number or ay info on where to contact for current conditions?
Thanks - you can call the DOC center in St. Arnaud for current conditions info ... (03)521-1806. I just listed it listed under a new heading (current conditions) as well.
Good job. Angelus Hut is definitely one of the best located huts I visited in NZ that's accessible to hikers/trampers. As an extra: did this mountain in 2000 on a 9-day hike in the Nelson Lakes NP. I combined the Travers - Sabine Circuit and the d'Urville Valley Track, with St-Arnaud as base. A good option for a beautiful and remote alpine tramping experience + gets away from the crowds in other NP's or the Great Walks.
Thanks! I'm jealous you got to do the whole Travers-Sabine/d'Urville - I really wanted to get to Blue Lake but we only had a weekend before we had to be back in Nelson.
....great kiwi page. With all the info you've posted recently, I'll never have to do another Great Walk again. Keep 'em coming.
Thanks! It's nice to get off the Great Walks from time to time - it certainly pays to look around for other options.
Agreed. Did the Routeburn in January. Never seen so many people in a so-called wilderness setting before. Came back on the Greenstone and saw one other tramper. Next time I'm down there Angelus and Fox are on my list.
