41km hike into the Tarauras over three days for a wet, muddy challenging journey. We spent the first night in the serviced DOC hut Tutuwai.
Day two we went further into the forest and spent a night at the second oldest hut in the Tararuas (c. 1945) Cone Hut.
Day three was a 8 hour hike all the way back down the valley to the carpark. Pizza was we deserved at home.
