Kanangra to Katoomba (K2K) Multi Day Hike Blue Mountains Trip highlights


  • Challenging hike through beautiful mountain scenery
  • Crossing two National Parks on foot
  • Abundant wildlife and stunning endemic wildflowers

Walk one of the classic multi day wilderness walks of the Southern Blue Mountains in this full-pack bushwalking expedition. This walk is through spectacular wilderness, following an unmarked path. Your guide will take care of the navigation so that you can enjoy the landscapes and panoramic views. The Kanangra to Katoomba (K2K) walk is a challenging one, with numerous ascents and descents, but your effort will be well-rewarded. In three days you will cross two National Parks, enjoying the best scenery of both.

Itinerary

As we leave the carpark we are met with stunning views, with breathtaking outlooks across Kanangra Gorge. The track crosses a number of rocky clearings along a plateau, before heading into a small gully. There are sections where scrambling is required and you may need to take your packs off. Today is a physically tough day, with lots of false summits and steep climbs leading up to Mt Cloudmaker. Leaving Mt Cloudmaker we follow the north side of the summit ridge, then drop down toward Dex Creek. The campsite at Dex Creek is in a semi-protected gully/swamp at an elevation of approximately 1000m. Dex Creek usually has clear, flowing water, and the creek is easy to access as it flows right through the middle of the camp site. Walking Time: 7-8 hours

Meals:  L,D

When we head off this morning there will be a short section of bush bashing required to reach the track that heads to Mt Moorilla Maloo. This section is very pretty with nice views. We continue north to Mt Amarina, before heading around Mt Strongleg. The descent down Mount Strongleg to the Coxs River is notoriously difficult and can be hard on the knees. The descent is steep and includes some very rocky sections. (Walking poles are highly recommended!). We cross through the Coxs River and then head up the Yellow Pup Ridge track. The rest of the track to Mobbs Swamp traverses Mt Dingo and Mt Merrimerrigal through Casurina Forest. This part of the track is well formed and easy walking. Overnight at Mobbs Swamp. Walking Time: 7-8 hours

Meals:  B,L,D

We start the day with an easy walk, following a well made and mostly flat track to Medlow Gap. From there we ascend to Tarro's Ladders, with a fairly easy elevation gain of 300m. Tarro's Ladders are a set of climbing staples fixed into the rock. The climb is only about 8m but can be difficult, especially when carrying a full pack. Belaying and pack hauling will be necessary for the climb. The track continues upwards, through clefts in the rocks up to Clear Hill. We end the day following 12km of fire trail to Narrow Neck. Walking Time: 6-7 hours
