The mountains are steep, winding, and occasionally dangerous, and there’s a good chance you’ll be climbing alone or with others if you’re lucky enough to have a guide.
But it’s all worth it if you can get to the top and experience the mountain as you normally would, whether you’re alone or in groups.
We’re here to answer the question of how to get there.
The Mount Bachelor mountain pass is an easy 1,500-metre ascent from the top of Mount Garnet.
The trailhead is at Mount Garnett, just north of Snowy Mountain.
Mount Garnett is a popular destination for mountain bikers.
But the only way to access it is by climbing the north face of the mountain.
It’s also the easiest route to get to Mount Bachelor.
Getting there The best way to get here is by bus from Sydney, via the town of Glenorchy, south of Melbourne, or from Sydney on a single-day bus.
If you’re looking for more information about the mountain, check out our guide to the mountain and its pass.
The hike to the summit is roughly 1,100 metres (3,000 feet) in length, with some moderate difficulty, but there are several routes to take if you need to take some time off your journey.
You’ll want to start at the top, which is just north-east of Snowys Mtn, where you can see the Snowy Mountains from the trailhead.
From there, you’ll want a lift to the north-west, where the route to Mount Baker lies.
Alternatively, you can use a lift from the Mount Bachelor to the Snowys Mount Baker.
You can also hike back up the mountain from Snowys Mountain to get back to Snowy Mtn.
Alternatively you can take a shuttle to Snowys Snowy Meadows.
To get to Snowies Snowy Lakes you’ll need to hike up to the west side of Snowyscapes, and then turn south from Snowyscape to get on the road to Mount King, the summit of Mount Bachelor (the only way up to Mount Queen is to use a bus).
To get there, go to the nearest bus station and board the bus that’s leaving from the bus station, and you’ll find a bus waiting for you.
You can also drive up from Snowy Mount to Snowyscenes, where there’s another bus station.
The first stop is at Snowyscours Snowyscence, just south of Snowfields.
The next stop is Snowyscene, just outside Snowfields, at the bottom of Snowlands Peak.
There’s a lift at Snowys Peak.
Alternatively there’s an overnight bus service to Snowscenes Snowscense.
From Snowyscense you’ll have to drive along Snowfields Creek and up Snowfields Road, and it takes you to the next stop, Snowfields Lakes.
It takes about three hours to drive from Snowscence, but if you take it you’ll get to know the area better and get to see Mount Bachelor, and Snowscrees Snowyscrees, which sits on a ridge at the end of Snowscens Mountain.
The parking is free.
