Your Blue Mountain Peak experience begins with a relaxing drive from your hotel into the Blue Mountain countryside. A complimentary stop at a local supermarket will be made along the way for you to purchase snacks and water/liquid refreshments as needed. Upon arrival at Mavis Bank, a settlement in the Blue Mountains, you will be greeted by your mountain guide and then you will climb aboard your rover to go deep into the rain-forest near the Abbey Green area. From here, you will begin your hike up the Blue Mountain, with your first section being a 60-minute hike up Jacobs Ladder to Portland Gap.
At Portland Gap, you will have a few hours to rest in the cabins at the Ranger's Station before departing at 3:30 AM to hike The Blue Mountain Peak Trail which falls within the pristine, primary forest of the national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Above 2,000 metres, as you near the summit, the lush canopy gives way to an elfin forest; where trees and shrubs are stunted and gnarled due to high elevation exposure.
Arriving at the peak just before sunrise, you will be filled with awe as the beautiful scenery unfolds with the light and warmth of the sun. You can begin your hike back down to the cabins to rest and grab a bite to eat (meals and drinks not included) before departing at 12:00 noon for your return trip to Kingston.
