Mt Tapuaenuku (Kaikouras) Climbing Notes

Linda from NEW ZEALAND writes:

The two huts where most people stay are owned by the Marlborough Tramping Club not DoC. The Club maintains these out of funds raised by hut fees.

When applying for permission to access across private land, you will get an indication of how many other people may be planning to be there on the same dates.
