After a significant project to rebuild Aspiring Hut and ensure it remains standing for many years into the future, the hut is officially open again. The new hut looks fantastic and is sure to be popular with trampers, climbers and other visitors to the beautiful West Matukituki valley, in Mt Aspiring National Park.
The iconic Aspiring Hut has been a base for many adventurers, young and old, for more than 70 years. Only a 2–3hr tramp via the West Matukituki Track, the hut is a great overnighter for families or those new to tramping. The refurbishment upgrades and layout changes taking place will continue the hut's legacy into the future. Please donate to the 2022 Aspiring Hut Refurbishment Project and help NZAC continue to support our future adventures and climbers in one of New Zealand's premier alpine locations.
