AUSTRALIA - Mount Kosciuszko - HIKE - january 2006

This is a great easy summer walk of about 22km return. It starts at the top of the Threadbo chair lift. It meanders along tracks and raised platforms through mountains ranges and rocky outcrops and lakes. There are plenty of alpine flowers and plants - very pretty.

At the base of Kosciuszko, the track becomes a road that winds its way up to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko. The return is via the same direction.

On our journey it started as a beautiful sunny day, cloudy and very windy at Kosciuszko and rain by the time we reached Threadbo. There were plenty of people going forward when we were nearly back, so they would have been wet and cold and there are no shortcuts. Come prepared!

time: 4 to 5 hours
grade: easy
take insect repellent and sunscreen - flies were insane
clothes for wet and cold weather - changeable
plenty of water
snacks to eat along the way
study and comfortable walking shoes
