Area:
Kosciuszko National Park - Northern end
Maps:
Jagungal

Walk or ride into Derschkos Hut located16km from the Round Mountain carpark in the northern end of the Kosciuszko national park in the Snowy Mountains. I am SPAN's hut maintenance officer (for Kosciuszko Huts Association) which means we will be able to take a limited number of 4WD vehicles into the hut & spend 4 days in the area (vehicles will not go beyond this point). From here it will be possible to walk or mountain bike ride to other locations like Mt Jagungal (2061m high), Grey Mare, O'Keefe's & Cesjack huts. These are all quite remote areas so having the luxury of gear transported into the area is a rare opportunity, the activity grade is as easy or hard as you want to make it! Some assistance with maintenance appreciated but not essential, all tools & materials supplied. For further information & maps showing the Derschkos area refer to www.khuts.org - The Huts - Derschkos hut
