Kapakapanui Hut


6 with mattresses and stove


1 hut ticket (hut category standard)


This is one of my favourite Tararua huts because of the isolation and many great nights I've spent here. Its easily accessible with the top of the ridge having great views of the Southern Crossing and Otaki area. Unfortunately the view isn't so good from the hut but the surrounding bush more then compensates.

Getting There

The hut is situated on a flat mound amongst some mature beech forest. It can be accessed from the Ngatiawa roadend or the Akatarawa summit road and Renata and Waiotauru huts are the closest Tararua huts.
