Was wondering if anyone has any advice about doing the 4D/3N Milford Track without a guide.

Female travelling alone. Any problems on doing this unguided?

Hi there,
there is no problem doing these tracks unguided, although I would not recommend it if your not an experienced tramper.
NZ weather can be extremely volatile, every year people get caught out by the change in weather.
So you need to be prepared for all circumstances, the police and rescue services in NZ are awesome, but they do get peeved at people going into the bush without the proper preparations (clothing, food, maps, letting people know their plans etc..).
