Dart Hut | Rees Dart Track, Mt Aspiring National Park

A five-star hut built in an almost five-star location at the junction of the Rees–Dart Track, and the route over from Cascade Saddle.

Worth staying two nights to allow a day trip to Cascade Saddle — one of the great day excursions in the South Island hills. Well, if the weather is decent.
