Snowys - guaranteed water in Summer

Postby Suz » Thu 13 Jan, 2022 8:02 am

Hey guys,

Toying with the idea of doing a week or so in the Snowys this summer but would defo want a guaranteed water supply - anyone have any trip recommendations? Ideally 3 - 10 days.

TIA

There's heaps of water still up in the high country.

How hard do you want the walk? Why not just do the 12 summits?
Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful.

Probably low - medium difficulty as I'm a bit fat and out of shape at the mo! I will try googling the 12 summits thx :)

Byadbo Wilderness, SE of Thredbo, is the only place I can think of where water will be hard to find. Everywhere else should be fine although it's still recommended to filter the water.

A good 5-7 day walk would be to follow the AAWT from Kiandra to Thredbo. There are also plenty of "make your own adventure" loops out of Charlotte Pass, Guthega Power Station and Round Mountain.
