Bookings are required for Angelus Hut and Angelus Hut campsite from 25 November 2013 to 30 April 2014. Angelus is a popular side trip off the Travers-Sabine Circuit.
The 80 km Travers-Sabine Circuit reaches deep into the heart of the mountains of Nelson Lakes National Park. Tranquil beech forests, fields of waving tussocks, 2000 metre-high mountains and clear rushing streams are highlights of the journey.
The circuit requires 4-7 days to complete and involves a crossing of Travers Saddle, an alpine pass subject to freezing conditions at any time of year.
Most of the track is classified as a tramping track. It is well marked and although most rivers and streams are bridged, after heavy rain there are a number of streams which may not be safe to cross. Sturdy boots and a good standard of fitness are recommended and warm, waterproof clothing is essential.
