We hiked the first two days in mist and light rain, which intensified the mystique of the multi green-hued rain forest and the river beside it. Waterfalls abounded above us. There was scarcely a time on the trail when we did not see waterfalls.
The hike was expertly led by four guides from Ultimate Hikes, which holds the concession to lead this track. Meg and I went with them two years ago on the Routeburn Track. We strongly recommend this company!
