"Haast" Haast by mountainpoet

Haast Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 70 photos

The Haast is deep West Coast stuff.
Rugged, Green, Lush, Wet and the occasional Sandfly.
Alot of people just stop to get gas there - but there is a heap to do if you just ask around.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The Sandflies are Big (you can see them coming)
  • Cons:The Sandflies are Big (big teeth, big bites)
  • In a nutshell:take some repellant
