The scenery was simply spectacular, photos do not do it justice. I am not used to such lush and thick vegetation , even on the ridgeline the birch forest was incredible. I have never seen such vibrantly green lichen and moss. The forest surrounding the lake contains over 650 different types of native plants, providing an essential habitat for a wide range of native birds, including the elusive brown kiwi. There are kiwi protection zones around the lake and we heard the calls on two nights from the huts. Simply magical.
