Makarora Valley, New Zealand, Gillespie Pass Lake Crucible 4 Day Camping Trek
The Gillespie Pass adventure is targeted to take place over 4 days, 3 nights within Mount Aspiring National Park, South Island, New Zealand. The park is renowned for its amazing diversity – mountains, alpine lakes, river valleys, waterfalls, glaciers, beech and podocarp rain forests. Above the tree line, subalpine gardens of tussock mark the mountainside in green lushness. The mountains are unspoilt and truly a sign of the beauty of the wilderness.
Enjoy the exciting climb up to Gillespie pass (1600m) to enjoy the skyline view of Mount Aspiring national park and Mount Awful.
