The walk up Mt Kosciuszko is not challenging. It is a pleasant hike from the Charlottes Pass Road or a harder climb up from Thredbo village. Many people take the easy way out and catch the Kosciusko Express chairlift from Thredbo, which means you miss most of the elevation gain of the walk. From there it’s a wonderful stroll through alpine landscape to the summit. The very last bit of the walk passes through boulderfields. The views are incredible.

Thredbo is offering guided hikes every Saturday from 4/11/17 until 28/4/18. If you haven’t been out on the Main Range before, this is a good way to get familiar with the terrain.

Its about a 13 km trip. There is a fee for the guide. You can find details on the walk itself, the costs and book online here.

If you want to do the walk on your own, there is a good guide available here. There are a range of other guided hikes available over summer (details here). One interesting option is to go on the Kosciuszko Sunset Guided Hike: ‘small groups watch the spectacular sunset, then with headlamps on, head back to Thredbo’.
