On top of that list is the Angelus Hut hike in Nelson Lakes National Park. This hike first came onto my radar back in 2011 during my previous New Zealand trip. After hiking to Bushline Hut in Nelson Lakes National Park, I talked to some fellow hikers who advised me to hike onwards to Angelus Hut, which is supposed to be one of the most spectacular located mountain huts in New Zealand.

    All of us travelers are looking for special places, those that the big masses of tourists skip because they are in a hurry to see as much as they can.
