Boyle Village (km 2054) – Arthur’s Pass (2167km): 113km… 8-9 days…

Sent Foodbox to YHA at Arthur’s Pass for 4/5 days

On the West Coast side of Harper Pass the route requires many crossings of the Taramakau and Otehake Rivers.
Trampers with river-crossings skills and experience will find these rivers possible in normal to low flows but impassable when
river levels are high. Extra food should be carried to enable trampers backtrack or to wait until river levels subside.
