Wentworth pass track

Wentworth pass track

Wednesday, February 6, 2013, up at dawn in Sydney for departure at 6:00 of the city to the national park of Blues Montains.

After a short stop at Danie and Marcel, here we are on the M4 towards Penrith then the climb to Wentworth Falls. It’s Hut Conservation at 8:30 we start our hike.

On the advices of Danie and Marcel, we opt for the long route down the cliffs be the Wentworth pass. I do not regret this choice because the course is absolutely beautiful. Certainly, we must be in good physical condition as the trail is quite steep with a descent then not recovered stairs and ladders.

The first part made us get into the “valley of the water”, the panorama on different falls is superb.

Then we move into a beautiful forest down the cliffs.
