Follow a meandering trail from Guthega Village through sub-alpine terrain to a suspension bridge crossing the mighty Snowy River. A continuous 4km ascent leads to the shoulder of Mt Twynam, the country's third highest peak. From here a 360-degree view of the Main Range is revealed. Descend into the upper Blue Lake cirque and onwards to the deep, cold waters of the lake itself. Back on track we cross the Snowy River again.
Depart Charlotte Pass following the Old Summit Road to Rawson's Pass before reaching the summit of Mt Kosciuszko via the fortified stone shelter, ‘Seamans Hut.' On return, descend to glacial Lake Cootapatamba via South Kosciuszko Ridge and climb to the high ground of the Ramshead where stacks of granite boulders stand precariously perched. Join the Dead Horse Gap track that winds past the rocky peaks of the southern end of the Main Range and descends through snow gum forests to your pick up point. Keep an eye out for Brumbies.
Above expectations. Certainly more professional than some overseas treks I have been on with some big name operations – Rob Naughton
