Description
Mountains form the longest mountain range along the eastern edge of Jamaica and features majestic scenery. Many people hike or bike through the mountains to witness first-hand nature at its finest. This under-explored area is also the source of the world famous and fragrant Blue Mountain Coffee.The ride up to the Blue Mountains is an interesting one. The roads are narrow, winding and unmarked, however, definitely worth it as the views are beautiful and a joy to behold. The mountain views are spectacular. The Blue Mountains is home to quaint villages.You also get to view waterfalls and tiny restaurants throughout. Fauna and Flora are so beautiful here. The Tour You can start at the Lodge – Whitfield Hall (elevation 4000ft) and hike to the peak, which is an elevation of 7400ft.I strongly suggest that if you want to see the sunrise you should hike from Mavis Bank the evening before and stay at one of the lodges overnight. Then set out around 6am for the hicking. Biking tours are also available which run about 17 miles down through the Blue Mountains. The journey begins around 6,000 feet elevation and ends at a waterfall where all can enjoy a cool and relaxing swim.Blue Mountain also boasts coffee plantation tours – there are plenty around, some large and some small. Visitors get to see how coffee beans are gathered and processed to make the world-famous coffee.
