More of a challenge than an enjoyable experience. With good weather it's merely difficult but I'd hate to attempt it after a bit of rain. Lots of pretty tarns and you definitely feel removed from civilisation. A good level of fitness and immunity to blisters is recommended

6 day track. Truly a challenging tramp. DOC brochure is good. I felt DOC staff in Te Anau were talking me out of it. I do not understand why Lake Hauroko Tours has better info than DOC.
