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

Loved it. Beautiful scenery, and a great sense of achievement on completion. Day 1 was easy, day 2 more challenging but still fun, and day 3 and 4 were tough - in our case, relentless rain and strong wind over the pass made it tougher...More
