Lake Alta Track, Queenstown Region, NZ - 3 travel reviews for Lake Alta Track

Short spectacular alpine track to a small pristine mountain lake. The track is only a short not too grunty climb to the top edge of the lake which is nestled behind the top of the Remarkables. You can go further - the views are amazing. On a clear day Mt Cook is visible in the distance.

Goin' Feral One Day At A Time: Lake Alta, New Zealand - December 2014

The Lake Alta Track starts at the Remarkables Ski Field near Queenstown, New Zealand. I walked around 6 kilometres including my aimless wondering around the lake. I used a brochure ‘Wakatipu Walks’ that I picked up from the DOC office in Queenstown and that, along with my GPS maps was enough for this well marked route. I’d rate this walk as easy, although there is a bit of climbing involved. The walk is in an alpine area so come prepared for dodgy weather.
