Waimakariri Col


Waimakariri Valley
Many good trips begin by the long plod along and in the Waimakariri river.

WAIMAKARIRI COL: Start from Carrington hut following the river bed up to the upper valley; Superb settings for a nice and small hut just above Waimakariri falls.

Going over the col to Rolleston valley requires more navigational skills and a longer day. Water fall, beautiful upper river, extensive flora in early summer.

From Carington Hut, Barker Hut is a good side trip and the round trip over Harman Pass and Ariel Tarn is very exciting.
For the experienced parties it is the way to the Five Pass trip over to the west coast.
