Mt Kosciuszko is the tallest mountain in Australia. It stands 2.2 kilometres above sea level.

Fourteen years ago, I climbed up to the Summit. The 18 kilometre return climb started from Charlotte Pass which took most part of the day. Unknowingly, I was pregnant with my first child.

Fourteen years later, we went back. With aging body and a little less fit, we started the climb from Eagle’s Nest in Thredbo. We took the chairlift to get to the top of Thredbo. From Eagle’s Nest, the steep climb to the peak of the mountain was 13 kilometres return. When we arrived at the peak, the weather suddenly changed. The vivid blue sky turned to a dark navy blue colour. It was windy and the rain was threatening to bucket down.

It’s spectacular to be on top Australia. It was incredibly nice to be closer to the clouds…
