Orongorongo valley

Orongorongo valley

The Orongorongo river valley is popular with trampers and day walkers, and four-wheel drive vehicles can reach it by following the river up from the coast. From the 1930s, regular visitors built huts in the valley. Since the 1990s the Department of Conservation has banned the construction of private huts. It manages some of the existing huts, renting them to trampers for overnight stays, but is demolishing others.
