Mt Kosciuszko towers over Australia at 2228 metres above sea level, making it the highest mountain in the country. Last week, we hiked to the top. We stayed overnight in Thredbo, and set out bright and early the next morning to start our walk. We caught the chairlift from to Eagles Nest first, cutting out a completely unnecessary 4km uphill walk, and then it was a 13km round trip to the summit. It took us close to 5 hours, breaks included.
The scenery this time of the year is stunning – and we got lucky with fresh snowfall overnight! There was plenty of mystical fog on our way up, but it cleared pretty much the moment we hit the summit, which allowed for clear uninterrupted views on the way back down. It was a fantastic experience, with a VERY EXCITING SURPRISE halfway through the photos!
Walk with me.
Yep, he popped the question at the summit! It was a pretty special moment!
