I won’t say one of the best in NZ,it’s the best.and reach to the top to taste the glaciers is such a wonderful experience.But strongly recommend do it in a sunny day,don’t try to go to the top glaciers in a bad weather.the rock will be very slippery.

very beautifull hike, even for not so much experts! but a good weather is really necessary. half part of the hike is walking on big rocks where you can be afraid and fall if it s to much wet or rainy! i recommande this hike !!

Wow. Very memorable hike. Lots of rocks and roots under foot with some very steep sections but a lot of fun. Lake Marian at the end is simply stunning. We lucked out and the clouds parted right after we arrived so we could really see the peaks and mountains all around us. Gorgeous spot. Challenging hike.

Rained the whole way, so muddy and slippery but still amazing!!!!! Definitely worth the effort.

Die it in 3 days. First and last day was ok, lot of forest. Track between luxmore and Iris burn is awesome!

Incredible setting for an easy hike. We took a picnic. Sand flies weren’t bad.

Did this hike up to mount luxamore and just stayed overnight in the luxamore hut for the night. The walk isn’t too tough with the first 5km nice and flat and the then goes up hill but it shaded most of the way but not too tough. The view at the top is amazing and just gets better and better as you keep going up (best bit after luxamore hut). Possible to do mount luxamore in a day if you head of early and fit. Also if you are quite fit and wanting to do whole track I don’t 4 days is need 3 is plenty also making it a bit cheaper as the huts are $130 per person per night and must book before in summer period.

Techy trail run. Did it pretty quick and had lots of fun. Did encounter one man peeing directly on the trail and a group of gals drowning the trail in their music. Im a tourist as well, but I do know my trail manners. Be respectful please.

not easy I definitely needed a good rest long before the end but the lake and mountains were so gorgeous at the end.

Beautiful walk out of the Routeburn. Thoroughly enjoyable. met some 8 year old girl scouts who had packed in the day before, so really quite easy.

Personally didn't want to do Conical Hill after the first day on the trek up to Mackenzie lodge, but the rest of the trail will stay in my memory forever. I hiked alone most of the day, masses of wild flowers, incredible views of glaciers, just spectacular. one of the most enjoyable hikes of my life. the sun was out, not wild animals or snakes to watch for, sheer bliss after the day before.

Difficult, but well worth it. Some super sketchy parts where if you put a foot wrong you are a gonna. Most of the time you are climbing through wet slippy rain forest, with each step you are negotiating tree roots.

Don't kid yourself, this is HARD. Truly amazing, but you are walking through a rain forest so it is wet and slippy and you are climbing over tree roots with every step. some super sketchy parts where if you miss your step climbing over a boulder you are a gonna. I did this hike with Uktimate Hikes, going the other way, maybe this way it would be easier. still, well worth it!

Absolutely beautiful trail!! Wanted to do it but couldn’t get a hut, so three of us packed our tent and did the campsites. Definitely recommend going Brod Bay to Luxmore, as going Counter clockwise is a bit more gradual of an incline (still steep!). Once you get up, you stay high and it’s a stunning traverse over some great ridges. One of the best hikes I’ve ever done. The sand fly’s can be gnarly so bring bug spray! Easy to do in two nights.

As a one-day hike, great for those who want to discover the Kepler. 1 hour and a bit to go to brod bay, then with good fitness and good weather the distance to Luxmore hut can be divided by 2. Which makes it more a 2 to 3 hour climb to the hut (I did it in 2). The way up through the bush can be a bit boring but that is what it takes and the vegetation remains interesting. Once at the hut I really recommend keeping climbing up to Mount Luxmore. It is another hour / hour and a half but the 360 degrees view up there is wonderful !
In the end it is a good +-32 km track.
If you are scared of the distances don't forget that you can take the boat from Te anau to Brod bay campsite, which will save you around 10 k (but will cost you). Another option is to stay overnight camping at Brod bay (before the start of the track or at the end). In good weather, the place is lovely. You can swim in the lake and watch the sunset/sunrise on Lake Te Anau.

This is a beautiful hike, taking you through mossy green rainforest reminiscent of the PNW, up through prairies and mountain top pools/ lakes. Crazy how the foliage changes on the way up. We unfortunately had clouds at the top and didn't get to see the views, but the fog brings everything in and makes you appreciate the immediate surroundings. If you're questioning the difficulty, I would consider it easy-medium. Very well groomed, bathrooms on the trail, did it in slip on shoes. It is mostly up hill, but definitely not hazardous.

One of the best hikes I've ever done! Do not do in rainy or even wet conditions! About one third of the way is stone. After the black lake please do not return already! You can enjoy an incredible view up to Milford Sounds if it's not cloudy! But you need to go up the steepest part after black lake.

Absolutly beautiful hike, beautiful views at the top and along ridgeline and gorgeous scenery through the forest. Were lucky with the weather the whole time, so were able to have a nice refreshing swim in lake manpouri end day 3. we took our time and did 4 days :) absolutly loved it.

We enjoyed this hike very much, but we are experts! It is a challenging hike, lots of loose rocks and very steep. No shade, climbing up a little wall (there is a rope) and crossing water from the river.
It starts flat and easy and becomes challenging and steep. The views are nice, though there are peaks, that have the better view on the top.

It was truly amazing. I dit it in two days in clockwise.
First day only jungle. You follow a river and then a lake. But the second day was wonderful. During three hours you follow the mountains ridge with scenic views.
One of the great hike I have done

I would describe this as a moderate hike if you take your time. Good, even surface, well defined trail. Quite exposed as you climb up to, and on, Key Summit but deep in a birch forest for the rest. Was a damp and misty day but certainty rewarding views along the way with a comfortable track beneath our boots.
A popular trail this one with a huge carpark at the Divide.
We added on hour or so by going down to Lake Howden for lunch.
