Top Dingle Hut, in the Dingle Burn, is well placed for an overnight visit from Christchurch.

Tramp up over the low saddle out of the Ahuriri, a 600m climb to 1448m.

The descent is easy into the Dingle Burn, another 600m below.

The hut is tucked into the bush edge, boasting a porch, six bunks, a log fire, a small stream outside and fine views of the Huxley Range.
