Did this over three days, missing the ascent due to three 6 yr olds in our group. Had a fantastic time, the scenery is incredible. One of the kids caught a decent sized trout just with a spinning rod while we were having a rest. Plenty of wildlife. The huts we stayed in were great...in fact one of them was more like a lodge! One of NZ's great walks!

Loved this hike! The bird life is phenomenal. Walked in with my husband, 12yr old and 4yr old. The first part of the track to the lake is really wide and well maintained with seats to sit and rest or appreciate your surroundings! Stayed in the hut for a couple of nights, thoroughly enjoyed this hike, one of my favourites and the lake is beautiful.
