This is YHA, Katoomba, or Blue Mountains YHA. This youth hostel is a great place for hikers, backpackers, or families to stay in, and housed my family for quite some time during this past Summer. Blue mountains YHA is also a great place to stay if you are planning on hiking or sightseeing due to how close it is to the three sisters and many hiking trails. the interior, more specifically the communal area. it is a very nice warm place to eat, or just relax during the holidays. This is the area where you can eat and drink, and in this communal there is also a pool table, a fire and a TV room at the very back.
This is a the beginning of the first Hike I went to in this area, the Prince Henry Cliff Walk. This walk, as you may be able to tell from the name, is a walk along the side of the mountain. Along this hike, you will be able to see a lot of very beautiful plants, and some of the best views I have ever seen.
This is one of the waterfalls I encountered whilst walking along the Great Staircase. This staircase consists of 1000 stairs, and many, including me, didn’t finish the whole thing.
This is a view of The Three Sisters, the most famous tourist attraction in Blue Mountains. These rock formations were once just one rock, but over the hundreds of years they have been around, they have eroded into three different rocks.
This is a view of the sunset from the top of the mountain. This picture was taken at about 4:45PM, which is a very early sunset for those of you who are late risers and late sleepers.
This is a view from the top of the mountain, this time in the morning, which was about 10AM. I overall had a great time in Blue Mountains, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys hiking and sightseeing.
