Two day track, awesome but more demanding than other walks. Cosy, beautiful hut. A great experience.

More difficult that we were initially advised. Going there was tough - walk back was more enjoyable. Beautiful hut location.

Two day hike with the Lake Angelus at 1600m. I used Robert Ridge route to go up and Speargrass Route to come back which was a good choice. A very pleasant two day walk.

After a long walk, you will arrive at one of the most beautiful views we have ever seen. The only word to describe it is 'magic'!

I did the track at Nelson Lakes for a second time. But this time a short version of three days. Beautiful track, good fun with climbing along the rocks and nice huts too. Love it!

This is an amazing, precious environment...enjoy but please use the toilets or if you can't dig a good hole and make sure you bury your toilet paper and waste deep enough or better still carry a small, lightweight shovel. It has recently been in the news about toilet paper blowing around up around Lake Angelus...not nice. Protect/Respect the natural beauty well into the future!!

We did the Robert Ridge Track to the Angelus Hut. It was quite a hard hike but the view was stunning.

Great track! Astounding views, and not that far up to the ridge. Angelus hut is nice, situated by a lake. A bit steep first hour second day.
