Lake Mackenzie Hut | Routeburn Track, Fiordland National Park

Well sited Lake Mackenzie Hut with a view to the nearby lake with Ocean Peak around to Emily Peak as a backdrop, and round to the left some peaks of the Darran Range some distance away. Just about as picturesque a spot as you could imagine.

Lake Mackenzie Hut is one of the busiest huts on the Routeburn, many people end up staying here on their little adventure.
