Great hike with an amazing view at the lake. It’s basically a climb the whole way until the last 5-10 minutes when you descend into the lake.

Great hike. Steep in places but worth it for the view at the top. Recommend walking the west to east option.

A very nice easy hike through a pretty forest to this serene and beautiful alpine lake. Do not expect any views until you get to the lake :). Walking by the roaring waters of The Gantry is impressive, but it’s not a water fall as some descriptions suggest. Enjoy!

good hike with nice view on the wanaka lake. could be dangerous at some place (very narrow)

Enjoyed the rock scramble on the west side of the loop. Super duper windy at the top. Did not expect that. Lots of people.

Diamond Lake to Rocky Mountain is well worth the steady climb to the top. No use just going to the Wanaka Lake Lookout when you can have a 360 degree view of Aspiring National Park with a bit more effort. I recommend walking West to East when you get to the fork. Signs are posted.

The Chasm Path is a well-maintained gravel walkway through lush green forest to a series of bridges overlooking the Cleddau River with its powerful waterfalls and smooth round potholes carved by the swirling water. Only a few miles from Milford Sound and just off the main Milford Road, this is a short but worthwhile stroll.

Did the hike in and back as a loop. Lots of seals!

This moderate to difficult track was slippery with uneven terrain. The ascent was relatively gradual though. View of Lake Marian at the top was worth the effort. Absolutely stunning glacial lake. Took us 3 hours RT with time for pictures at the top.
