Matukituki Valley

 

West Matukituki valley

Beautiful Valley with a lot of tracks of various difficulty to beautiful places.

ROB ROY GLACIER: *** Short and beautiful walk to a pretty hanging valley with excellent views on the peaks and the glaciers.

LIVERPOOL HUT: *** Very steep and rough track from the Matukituki valley to a tiny cosy hut with good views of Aspiring range. Scope for exploring the upper valley and peaks.

SCOTT'S BIVVY: ** In a patch of ribbonwood is a small rock shelter. Low of ceiling but convenient for two. Upper valley leads to a steep route to Bevan col. Lots of flowers, snowy peaks and glaciers.

KITCHENER CIRQUE: *** Spectacular side valley off East Matukituki river, camping for a couple of days give the occasion of climbing up Wilmot Saddle and Mt. Sysyphus for superb views of Tititea (Mt. Aspiring) and other major peaks of the area.
