Above Basin Hut, Basin Creek starts broad on shingle but soon the valley becomes narrow and frequent crossings are required (knee deep in normal flows) of the fast-flowing stream on loose rock.

Chamois Creek is reached after 2km.

Above Chamois Creek the valley reverts to tussock and rock/moss/lichen and travel is more pleasant.
