West Ridge Walk
Grade 3 - Some experience required
- 150 Australian dollars$150
- Minibus Pickup from Mansfield Info Centre
∙ Walk Time: 3.5 Hours one way (option to walk return - see below) ∙ Travel Time: 1.5 Hours return ∙ Distance: 10km one way This walk is wonderful... but not for the faint hearted! A steep ascent to the ridgeline following a gravel path. The actual ridge itself has scrambly places and is definitely not recommended for those who suffer from vertigo or a fear of heights. The ridge drops away dramatically on both sides and is at times difficult to move along. We will reach a rock monument where the Summit of Mt Buller can be seen in the distance, but so is the challenge to reach it! A rocky descent into the valley is prevalent before the last rock scrambling section is completed to ensure you feel a huge sense of achievement when finally reaching the Lookout Station situated at the top of Mt Buller’s Summit. From here it is a staircase descent to the bottom of the Summit ski run and a short walk (if you are up to it!) into the Village to share the experience over a well earned coffee at the Alzburg Hotel. Travel involves organised transfers from Mansfield to the start of the walking track. Then pickup at Mt Buller Summit/Village & return to Mansfield. NOTE: You have the option to walk from Start to Summit and back to the bus. Allow extra 3.5hrs walking time and additional costs - please enquire directly.
