There are several routes to the 28-bunk hut, but the Pinchgut Track offers the best chance of views.
It starts at 879m and rises to Mt Robert ski field at around 1560m. There is a shelter here in case of bad weather and it’s a good spot to have a meal break. To reach Angelus Hut, continue along Robert Ridge, following cairns and poles. Experience reading a map and using a compass is essential in bad weather or low visibility conditions. The hut is nestled beside Lake Angelus.
It’s a gorgeous and popular spot, so get there early to secure a good bed.
