Being one of the highest mountains in the Caribbean, the Blue Mountains, usually shrouded in mists and intrigue, being far from the touristy places and beaches. You can even find small settlements that don't have any roads guiding to them. Nowhere else will you find such diverse and exotic flora as in the rainforests of the Blue Mountains.

The hike to the summit of the Blue Mountain peak is considered to be of moderate difficulty. It's better to hit the mountain early in the morning under the clear sky, as you'll be blessed by a spectacular panorama of Kingston and unforgettable views of twinkling lights before the sunrise over the Caribean Sea. You'll never get tired of observing the valleys lying between the lower mountains which begird the great mountain. Don't be surprised if this natural beauty makes you feel a little high.

The drier months, December through April will be perfect for a climb, with February/March having the best weather. However, even the driest months can see heavy rains. The wettest months to avoid are May–June and September–October.

After your ascent, head back downhill to your lodge or mountain cabin to enjoy a cup of Blue Mountain Coffee.
