A fun day hike up a fairly steep trail to an alpine lake. Lovely alpine scenery and a great place for a picnic.

Routeburn track is absolutely gorgeous. We used Easyhike for our logistics, including backpacks, food and relocation of our car. They are very nice and responsive. Great service! Will use Easyhike again next time.
