Friday night (5th) at Waiopehu & Saturday night (6th) at Mangahao Flats huts

Te Matawai hut 50th Anniversary trip - 5 to 7 April
2024 is the 50th anniversary of the current Te Matawai hut, so that sounds like a good excuse to go there, especially given our connection to the original Te Matawai hut.
My plan is to go into Waiopehu hut on the 5th, lunch at Te Matawai on the 6th & stay at Mangahao Flats hut that night. On the final day we'd walk out to the road end at the top Mangahao dam.
To whet your whistle in the meantime, here's a video that I found on the construction of the hut in 1974! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tk_31ApS770
