description

Surrounded by glaciers at the head of the White River, this is the highest hut in Arthur's Pass National Park.

A cute little hut.
Good climbing opportunities surround the basin from Mt Davie at 2280m, Mt Wakeman at 2271m, Mt Murchison at 2408m, & Mt Harper at 2222m . Extended trips over the White Col & down into the Burnet to the Wilberforce then up to the Park Morpeth Hut.

pedestrian access

4-hours from Carrington Hut. No trail.
This route is almost entirely along riverbeds and is only realistic with low river levels. The route crosses a stream off the White Glacier just before the hut that can become impassible in rain. Numerous avalanche paths cross the route up the White River, making it unsafe in Winter or early Spring.
