And true to it’s name, the mountains did look bluish towards the horizon. Katoomba is a quiet suburb, a hilly area surrounded by beautiful tall trees and bushes. There were many hop-on-hop-off buses plying on the road. I bought a ticket that covered trails, scenic world and scenic railway.
Assam, one of the North-Eastern states in India is also known as Land of Blue Mountains and Red River. Whenever I did a search on my hometown, Google would often return information on Blue Mountains (Australia). So, when I landed in Sydney last year, it was natural that Blue Mountains was high on my travel list.
One sunny Saturday, I took an early morning train from Strathfield and reached Katoomba station, two hours later.
The Scenic Cableway had a glass floor and you could see waterfalls and valleys down below. Can you see the Katoomba Waterfall in the picture?
It is also a vantage point to view Three Sisters, Mt Solitary and Orphan Rock.
The view in front of me was just stunning and majestic. I wondered how dense the forests looked, but at that point I didn’t know that an hour later I would inside this forest, hiking and climbing stairways.
