Beautiful trail, wonderful view on top. Perfect for trail running. I did a side trip from the Dart hut. The trail is following the river in the valley for 6/7km before going up to the saddle. Some landslides happened so there are a few parts that are a bit tricky. especially after a day of rain, it must be really slippery!
