Pakituhi Hut | Hawea Conservation Area
After the 1000m or so climb to get here from Lake Hawea the sight of Pakituhi Hut would be welcome for many. Built in 2011 to fill the gap for Te Araroa the hut already seems too small but if less than completely full is cosy enough.
This hut, at 1380m above sea level, is one of the highest on Te Araroa and being in Tussockland has no heating.
