Hiking in Blue Mountains, Sydney

I went to Blue Mountains this Jan with my husband. We both love outdoor sports, so having heard a lot about the place and it's beauty, we decided to spend a day there.

We took the morning train from Strathfield Station at 7:32 and reached Katoomba station by 9:30. There we bought tickets for scenic world and hop-on-hop-off bus which cost us about 140$ each.

To summarize we went to Scenic Railway-> Blue Mountain National Park-> Leura Forest -> Henry Cliff Walk -> Katoomba (5 hours of hiking)

The bus took us to Scenic world where we went for a sky ride. I have to say, the place is magnificent. The blue hue of the mountains, standing tall, makes you wanna sit there all day long.

The Skyrail

That's the waterfall which we saw from skyrail.

The skyrail dropped us at scenic railway. We had delicious hot chocolate and milkshake in the cafe.Overlooking the ridiculously gorgeous mountain view, with a cup of choco milkshake, that is one of the beautiful places to have breakfast. 

The Scenic Railway is one of the steepest cable-driven funicular railway in the world, the steepest incline of 52 degrees[1] contained within a total incline distance of 415 metres (1,361.5 ft). (wiki)

The Scenic Railway brought us down to the entrance of Blue Mountain National Park, and then began our 5 hours of hiking.

As we walked towards the Leura Forest, the three sister rock got closer.

The path.

There's a wonderful picnic spot at the base of Leura Forest. It took us about 2 and half hours to reach Leura Forest.

This is where our hiking ended. After 5 hours I saw civilization again :)
