Fantastic walk, steep and challenging at times, took us just under 3 hours to get up and back down. Fantastic views. Highly recommend.

Tour du lac facile et joli. Vous pouvez aller au point de vue sur Wanaka ou faire une boucle vers le haut mais ça monte et surtout il y a des escaliers donc si genoux douloureux c’est à éviter je pense.

Wonderful hike. A few steep sections but not bad. We opted to do this hike over the Roys Peak hike. Very few people on this hike which made it very enjoyable. A very panoramic view at the top.

Solid hike, great views! Would recommend for most fitness levels, though it does get a little challenging up the rocks through the west side. Probably a better option than Roy's peak if the weather's questionable.

What a great walk! Well signposted with spectacular 360 views at the top. We walked west to east based on recommendations of reviews and really enjoyed it.

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

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.
