Long Description:
This Hut located on Rogers Inlet on Lake Monowai is really a bit of a dying hut in terms of neglect and lack of maintainence. It is still useable but I have stayed in better. The photo I have posted for this is a bit blurry and I apologise but it is to far to go back just to take another but it gives you general idea of the hut. I will post other pics of my activities and people around this hut. This hut is mostly frequented by Hunters / Deerstalkers and it is possible to walk to by starting back along the road from the Lake Monowai boat ramp. The hike in is about 6 hrs I believe. I must confess I have never walked it. Access to Rogers Inlet for me was via the Petrol Pontoon so I got it easy really. The Hut is a 2 piece hut with an square and a A-frame structure. The A-frame is a sleeping hut and sleeps 4 people and the square block is a cook house with bunks for 2 people. There is no track on from here so it is a 'walk in-walk out' track. Water is sourced from the lake but take Gardia precautions. If you are venturing there by boat the landing is just a beaching (no jetty) and can be difficult to pin point where the hut is if the bleach bottle marker has been removed. The lake edges around Rogers Inlet has lots of drowned trees from when the Lake Level was raised for the power scheme. Looks unsightly but the government of the day didn't mind. Topographical maps are a must if you plan on venturing around here and I would advise bringing your own bed roll as well as Gas cookers etc. I liked it here and had good fun with respect to the party I was with but this is not a hut I would break my neck to go back to. If you do go here then look after it and try to leave it in better condition than you found it as I am of the belief that the beauracrats are looking for excuses to remove it.
