Diamond Lake & Rocky Mountain Walk
Hill climb for glorious views near Wanaka (3hrs)
You’ll find the carpark for the Diamond Lake & Rocky Mountain Walk 18km west of Wanaka on Mt Aspiring Rd.
This enjoyable walk takes in beautiful Diamond Lake, spectacular in autumn, then a climb up Rocky Mountain behind it.
Don’t miss the Wanaka viewpoint, and if you’re lucky, a sighting of Mt Aspiring (3033m) from the summit. Take the signposted eastern track going up, then the well-marked western track coming down.
