Aftermaking our way up the ski lift it was time for the 6.5km walk to the summit
The boardwalk was like a metal grid and was easy to follow, laid out over small streams and also takes you to a couple of lookout points
And also to the start of the Snowy River that makes it's way down to the Wilderness Coast just south of a town called Orbost, Victoria
All along the walk there are boulders and rocks strewn all over and these provide much needed shelter for all sorts of small creatures such as the endangered Pyg-my Possum
As you get higher and closer to the summit the glacial lakes come into view
There are other paths that take you to the summit and are all joined at a marker stone junction where there are also toilets discretly built into rocks and are very clean and tidy. No refreshment stalls though :-)

On reaching the summit there are some great 360degree views. Today was warm with a slight breeze and patchy cloud blowing over some mountain tops from the valley.
More summit views
We made our way down and as we passed the rocks I did get the urge to do a bit of scrambling but it's a definate no no, and only the Ravens are allowed to play. Reminds me of the rocky summits around Snowdonia
The storm rolling across the mountains from our base at Jindabyne Lake
A fantastic day in a fantastic place. We were lucky with the weather and had some great views all day and it felt great to be on the Roof Of Australia, Mount Kosciuszko.
