A memorial plaque has been installed on the Routeburn Track for a Czech tramper who died there last year.
Ondrej Petr, 27, fell from Ocean Peak near Lake Mackenzie on 28 July while tramping with his partner Pavlina Pizova.
Members of Queenstown's Czech & Slovak Club last Friday and Saturday retraced the pair's steps and put up a plaque for Mr Petr on a rock near the scene.
Czech honorary consul Vladka Kennett said the idea was discussed with Ms Pizova and the pair's families and then taken up by the club.
She said the club members felt a strong bond with their compatriots and as they travelled the group reflected on what the trampers must have experienced and on their ill-fated decisions not turn back despite worsening winter weather.
"[At] pretty much every spot which was something interesting regarding the story ... [of] what these two had to go through, not only [from] a human point of view, but also a search and rescue point of view, and why they made the decisions they made."
Ms Kennett said the plaque was commemorative for Mr Petr and his family, but also a warning to others that there were real dangers, even on a popular tramping track.
