- With over 40 cm of fresh snow in the past 48 hours, accompanied by very strong winds and lots of transported snow, the avalanche danger is considerable in some areas of the back-country today. Avoid steep terrain, especially near ridge tops lee to the west and south, and especially as the day warms. Take Care out there. at Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing Monday 15 July, 2019
One of Victoria’s icon walks, the 37km Falls-Hotham Alpine Crossing (FHAC) is a 3 day/2 night walk through the Alpine National Park, linking the resort villages of Falls Creek and Mt Hotham.
Winding its way along alpine ridges through snow gum woodlands and snow grass plains, over rocky summits and past historic huts, this 3 day hike offers an achievable and rewarding hiking challenge with spectacular views every step.
The Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing is a point to point walk, accessible for hiking from November to April. The track can be walked in either direction but is best when starting from Falls Creek and walking towards Mt Hotham.
There are two campsites on the Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing: Cope Hut Campsite, amongst the snowgums on the Bogong High Plains, is 14km from the trailhead and usually the first night’s campsite. Dibbins Hut Campsite is on a snowgrass plain near the headwaters of the Cobungra River.
A permit is required to camp at the Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing campsites.
