Photo of the week: Dart Valley

Department of Conservation —  29/01/2014

Today’s photo of the week was taken on the Rees-Dart Track, a 4-5 day tramping circuit which follows the Rees River and the Dart River through farmland and the southern part of Mount Aspiring National Park.

A massive landslide recently cut off tramping access through the Dart Valley.

An alternative temporary track was opened on Monday which has restored tramping access. Trampers are advised to stick to the alternative route at all times for their safety.

The track provides great views of the lake and landslide from this route, particularly on Sandy Bluff.
