There are three main routes to the top. The first one starts in the ski resort Thredbo . You get up by a lift and then there is a 6.5km long iron walkway. It was built there in order to protect the nature from damage which would be otherwise made by the tourist traffic.The second route is directed from the opposite side, from a ski resort Charlotte Pass.
