Very picturesque location with gorgeous lake views. Room was large and had all the necessities required. Very friendly hosts. Not much privacy, with shared patio area, but otherwise was in a good location and within walking distance of downtown Wanaka.

- the later in the day it got, the clearer the mountains were getting, and we got many more good pictures here
- There were two giant waterfalls between the mackenzie hut and the lake howden hut, the bigger one, which the track went right next to, was called the earland ...

Approx an hour and a half walking thro rain forest and then thro a valley to the glacier summit. The views were unbelievable but could have been so much better had there been no fine rain and wind. Once we were back ...
