Walter Peak

  • 3 hr – 8 hr return via same track
  • Medium

Walter Peak is the prominent peak on the other side of Lake Wakatipu, where the Earnslaw boat goes.

Most of the terrain is easy to navigate - tussocks and rocky outcrops. Towards the end it's quite a scramble.

For experienced trampers only. The terrain is very steep and towards the end it's more like climbing than tramping.

See photos to get more of an idea.
