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.
