via Tukino Ski Field and Whangaehu River
Mike Cole 344 7275 / 021 160 6875
An alternative way into Rangipo hut, a bit longer but much more interesting. We will navigate down the Whangaehu River and rejoin the normal route there. On the way out may also try an alternative route to locate the bund preventing lahars from the Whangaehu valley getting into the Tongariro River.
Approximate cost $30 + hut fees
