This 6-day trek explores the Upper Wilkin river valleys and lakes, heading into the Siberia Valley and over the famous 1600m Gillespie Pass before descending down through the Young Valley.

The scenery will certainly not disappoint - this trip has everything - alpine rivers, native beech forests, alpine tussock and snowgrass, snow capped mountains, ice covered lakes, waterfalls, and grassy meadows.

This trip is ideal for fit (but not so intrepid) hikers who are wanting a more extended time in the New Zealand mountains.
