Mount Bogong - Summer - 3 Days
"The Big Fella. Are you ready to take it on?"
Mt Bogong's summit is the highest point in Victoria and considered by any as a test of endurance, the local aboriginal name roughtly translates to "The Big Fella". We have designed our summer ascent of Mount Bogong to be the most confortable way you can attempt this mountain. We'll meet you up at our accomodation near Mount Beauty on the Friday evening, we'll then be transported to the start of our hike where we'll climb up and over Mount Bogong to stay at a stunning and comforable campsite. The following day we'll head back over, spend some time taking in the views from the summit, then descend an alternative route to complete our loop.
On this trip your guide team will support you by carrying the groups food, cooking equipment and tents. All you will need to carry is your personal belongings, sleeping bag and matress (matress can be supplied). Your pack shouldn't total more than 12-13kgs.
