Best of Both Worlds Trek

Best of Both Worlds Trek

Explore ancient glacial lakes and rare scientifically significant alpine peat bogs


Day One

Starting from Australia’s highest village Charlotte Pass; we cross the Snowy River and walk on to experience the power and beauty of the ancient Blue Lake. Hewn out of granite by colliding rivers of ice, this is Kosciuszko National Park’s deepest glacial lake. The final 800m of trail ascends steadily on a paved trail, albeit the last few hundred metres to Charlotte Pass is sometimes known as heartbreak hill, but it’s worth it. Enjoy our Spirit of the High Country Dinner & Show this evening. 

Day Two

Ride the chairlift from Thredbo Village (1365 metres) to Eagles Nest (1945metres), follow a grated path that crosses the headwaters of the Snowy River and enjoy the vista of Lake Cootapatamba, Australia's highest lake. The journey continues with the summiting of Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest peak, which affords sweeping views over the Main Range and beyond to Victorian alpine terrain.

On return, descend to glacial Lake Cootapatamba via South Kosciuszko Ridge and climb to the high ground of the Ramshead where stacks of ancient granite boulders stand precariously perched before a taking leisurely ride on the chairlift back to Thredbo Village where your transport awaits you.
