Touching the Rainbow: Snowy Mountains Area (Jindabyne, Mt Kosciuszko, Yarrangobilly)

You are probably trying to figure out what the title means, so I will say, stay tuned and keep reading.

Last Easter, my new friends in Sydney were kind enough to ask me to join them on a three-days-trip to the Snowy Mountains Area. I was hesitant at first because of my work commitment, but oh what the heck! I love travelling, so made up my mind and took one day leave (and so much thoughts for only a day!).

Day one

We hit the road very late, thus arrived quite late. All we did on the first day was grocery shopping, dinner, games, and sleep. We stayed at a two-storey modern house in Jindabyne. It was very comfy and thank goodness for the clean toilet!

Day two

Our plan for day two was to ride the chairlift to the top of Mt Kosciuszko (I need to go back to google everytime I attempt to write this mountain name), hike to the peak, and go to natural thermal pool in Yarrangobilly. Reality was we were late, so we had to climb back down as it’s almost the time when they stopped the chairlift, and went to Jindabyne Lake instead to fish as the pool was like 2 hours away from where we were.

Day Three

Unfortunately I did not take any photos at the pool as it was pouring. The pool is located about 15mins walking down the valley (the return journey was a work out). All I could say is it is very natural, so if you expect super clean and luxurious thermal pool/hot spring this is not the place for you. It was not that warm either, at least for me and my friends. I was freezing from my neck up and it was not even winter yet!

But anyways, I enjoyed the trip and will always remember the day when I touched the rainbow.
