Kepler Track Day 4

KEP0071

Sunday morning and a great sunrise over Lake Manapouri.

KEP0070

Farewell to Moturau Hut.

KEP0072

The final day is an easy six km walk on the flat to Rainbow Reach. You can go further to the Lake Te Anau Control Gates, but as I had an afternoon flight back to Wellington, we got picked up at Rainbow Reach.

KEP0073

The sun starting to come through the trees.

KEP0074

Out in the open.

KEP0075

A walkway to a great viewing platform.

KEP0076

This waterway is hidden away – most people would have no idea it is there.

KEP0077

The penultimate bridge.

KEP0078

Great views looking back.

KEP0080

The Waiau River.

KEP0079

And the final bridge over to the Rainbow Reach Carpark.

Very different to other other . The views of the lakes from high up are spectacular.  Was more challenging than most of the other (on a par with Heaphy) but nothing too bad. Great to have completed my 7th Great Walk.
