We took the ski-lift up to not quite the top, after a 400m steep walk we hit the amazing paved path and metal track. The top was magical, covered in snow that was slowly melting and making little pools. Dramatic boulders and delicate alpine grasses...More

This was one of the most enjoyable hikes that I have ever done! We went up in September, still pretty wintery conditions. We had amazing tour guides, who provided all the correct equipment, and great company.

My wife and I (carrying Mr 1yo) and Miss 5yo walked to the summit last week. It was a fantastic day, highlighted by snow fights and amazing views. It is very achievable if you take your time, and enjoy the experience.

Never fails to amaze. Beautiful backcountry and fresh air. Worth getting out on the main range. Comfortable walk to Kosci from the top of the Thredbo chairlift. Take layers of clothes as conditions can change quickly

We spent two days hiking here at Easter. The main walk up to the summit is 14km return (via Chair Lift) and moderately strenuous. The walk is mainly on a board walk to protect from erosion but this did not detract. It was a good...More

Hi - the weather will be cold in May, you will need to dress in layers, so as the day warms up you can take off the layers, gloves and beanies are also a good idea. Definitely you will need sunscreen and re-apply frequently... More
