The full Kepler Track is appx 60 kilometers. The track consists of a clearly marked single track loop, starting and ending in the village of Te Anau, located in the Fiordlands of New Zealand. The Fiordlands are the southwestern region, famous for heavy rain forests, and the breeding grounds for endangered kiwi birds.
The track climbs upwards 13 kilometers from lake Te Anau up to the peak of Mt Luxmore (1472 meters), passing through rainforest and limestone bluffs. Once across the peak, the trail becomes narrow and technical, following a razor ridge for appx 15 kilometers, and gaining another 100 meters of elevation through two emergency huts. From there the trail dramatically descends into a lush fern valley.
