Three and a half hours up to the best view in Lake Wanaka. A challenging walk, but worth the effort!

Wow! What an amazing experience, we hiked the track in time for sunrise yesterday, the track was well mapped and easy to navigate with a head torch, we carried on the extra 17km of the skyline track, (keep going after Roy's peak) Mt alpha, is higher and more stunning fyi.... The skyline track was great up until the last 8-10km of decent of farming land so we thought upon reflection we would have had better terrain and views if we'd just turned back after 15km or so.... Great day out though

One of my top 5 trails - start before sunrise to beat the heat in Spring/Summer. Sunrise is worth it - we started at 330am and we’re at the top by 545am to view sunrise.

Best hike I've ever done so far and it is all for the view. I have a tattoo of this peak it's so special.

This trail is tough: Straight up, No shade, No portable water, no respite but the view makes it worth it. It is one of my favorite views in all the world.

Exposed trail with no shade! We started late afternoon and the heat was deadly but still beautiful and worth it!

Only did a small portion of the hike but we were able to quickly get to a decent height to oversee the landscape and take beautiful pictures.
