did it in 1 day. 62km in 10h45 ... counterclockwise of course ... water is clean at the 3 huts along the way so pack light on water if you want to enjoy your run ... started at 6h15am ... covered and rainy for half the run ... nice views at the top and nice tropical forest for the second half! if i would to do it again i would run it half way counterclockwise and come back the same way. start at the parking lot directly!!

Done in 2 days instead of the 3 I had planned. The 1rst day was windy but amazing with stunning views on the lake and mountains, the 2nd day was a long but nice bush walk.

One of the harder Great Walks in my opinion, although the age recommendation is ten my brother was seven when he did it. He survived, but it took a toll on him. If you are afraid of heights I wouldn't recommend this because during most of the second day, if you trip, you will go rolling down the cliff.

Spectacular views

on Kepler Track

Hiked the first part up to the end of the treeline back in February. Easily the most stunning place I've ever been. The forest is incredibly lush and the trails are well maintained. It helps to have waterproof boots during the rainy season as mud does accumulate quite a bit. Once you get past the treeline prepare to be amazed with stunning views of the surrounding snowcapped mountains and lake below. I will definitely be back to complete the loop when I'm outfitted with enough gear.

One of the most challenging but fun hikes I’ve ever done!! 110% recommend taking your partner and seeing how long you can last

I did this track in one day !
the first part is lovely.
After that was snowing so WE couldn't see much

Anyway it's a really nice track to do, but you should do it during the great season (Oct/Apr).

I loved the hike along the top (once I got there!) along the ridge. Beautiful views...you feel like you’re on top of the world. Side hikes to the cave and waterfall are a must!

Wow kepler, probably deserves an ode but a mere review will have to suffice. Spectacular scenery from lakeside to fern filled forests and gnarly trees growing sideways out of the hillside to sweeping views of valleys and lakes with clouds rolling in and out like the tide. With good weather the views cannot be beat. The sleeping huts make your pack lighter. This trek is a must do!
