What a stunningly beautiful place. And definitely must be seen in the rain to appreciate it fully---it is wall-to-wall waterfalls then. The self-catered huts are very well-kept and comfortable. So nice not to have to pack a tent, mattress, or cook stove. Tip for hikers:...More

Just get on and book it ASAP. They only take a limited number at anyone time so the earlier you book the more likely you are to secure a place. Happy tramping
