How much is the cheapest option for transport from The divide back to the Shelter? Do you have any recommendations next to the official transport buses?
Hi guys I am looking to do this hike as well as a few others this upcoming june/july would you recommend it? We have quite good hiking gear - just saw that the avalanche warnings are in place for those months - has anybody any experiences to share/opinions? Many thanks
I am looking at doing 2 walks at the end of the year maybe in November . The Hump Ridge and Routeburn . Was wondering which one should I do first and in which direction as I know you can start Routeburn not far from Queenstown . And should I look at maybe a 3 day break in between doing the walks. also need to look into transport getting to these walks .As we are travelling with another couple still not sure if we need to hire a car or use the transport system which we did last year when we did the Kepler track . Thank you in advance
Going next march on routeburn track...my questions are:
1)Does the huts have gas cooking facility?So I can just bring my pot,food and plate?(I booked the huts already).
2)There is accessible water if I need to wash my set of clothes?
3)Is possible to get water to drink close the hut?
Thanks for your suggestions
My wife and I are approaching seventy years old but we would like to have a glimpse of the famous Routeburn Track, a 2 to 3 hours walk returning to the parking lot where we start.
We are driving and will be staying at both Milford Sound and Te Anau.
Any suggestion regarding where should we start the walk ?
many thanks for your help, Patrick
Hi, I'll be hiking the Kepler and Routeburn tracks later this year in December. I was just wondering if people had any suggestions on whether it's worth/safe bringing a camera (DSLR)?
Will this just be extra weight? Are iPhone quality photos good enough?
My husband and I (both early 30s) will be hiking the Routeburn Track in mid-February.
We are staying in the Routeburn Falls hut the first night, and the second night can choose between the Lake Mackenzie campsite or the Lake Howden hut. We like the idea of staying in huts, as our packs will be lighter without camping gear, however the Lake Howden would make for a much longer second day. Any advice on which option might make for a more pleasant trip? We don't have a lot of backpacking experience but are reasonably fit.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
