Type: 
Valley
Access: 

To upper Arahura Valley and Harman Hut
The Styx Valley is approached from the Upper Kokatahi Road or Lake Kaniere. It is well tracked and
hutted and regularly used on the Three Pass Trip. It offers fast and easy access to peaks and transalpine
adventures on the Main Divide around Browning Pass. From a gate and DOC sign on the true right of
the Styx, a well-marked track gives easy travel up valley. Grassy Flat Hut (10 bunks) is very pleasant and
was built by DOC in 2008 as part of an extensive hut and track upgrade throughout the West Coast.
Beyond here, the track leads up on the true right into the swampy red tussock trough of Styx Saddle
and then down to meet the old benched Arahura Track leading to Harman Hut (DOC, six bunks).
