What people say

"The Ben Lomond track is a day-hike and takes about 6-8 hours, starting from Queenstown. The summit will spoil you with breathtaking views over the Lake Whakatipu, Queenstown and the surrounding mountain ranges. It is an exhausting hike as you'll have an elevation gain of more than 1.400 meters and parts of the track are quite steep and rough. HOWEVER there is an easier option if you don't want to miss out. You can take the Skyline Gondola to save the first part of th track and walk from there which is a 4-5 hour return hike."
"This is a hefty hike, but a very epic one if you're up for a challenge. It's 13.4km with 1300m of elevation gain and it will take your whole day."
