Punga Hut / Miro Valley Hut

The inside of this gem of a hut in the northen Tararuas. Horizontal punga trunks tied to a frame of hardwood with no. 8 wire. Ingenious construction which has stood the test of time since the 50's when it was built (with a little help from a dedicated band of locals who maintain it).


  • FrankB FrankB Looks as if it has been done up a bit since I saw it in 69. Was a welcome shelter at the time.
