Routeburn Falls Hut | Routeburn Track, Mt Aspiring National Park
Adjacent to the actual Routeburn Falls, the Routeburn Falls Hut is built on stilts with a grand overview of the lower Routeburn valley.
Sort of refurbished, it really is five-star tramping accommodation even if the sleeping arrangements are somewhat more monastic/prison-like, ie, four closely grouped bunks for each cell.
