“Blue Mountians = Beauty & Tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

We have travelled to Blue Mt. peak over 10 times. In the "old days" (1970's) have driven a Morris Minor pick-up, a Ford Ranger pick-up and a Volkswagen all the way to Whitfied Hall. Even drove the Ranger over the metal footbridge between Maavis Bank and Hagley Gap. You would not even contemplate such vehicles for use on the Hagely Gap - Whitfield Hall Road, it is strickly 4-wheel drive, Land Rover stuff (My 1988 Landrover 110 makes it all the way very nicely).
The mountains are spectacular. Serenity abounds adjacent to Whitfield. Bring what you need, because the are supplies of coffee only...nothing else is available.
The hike to the peak is nothing more than a very laborious walk, not really mountain climbing. Done day or night it is the same thing..."the peak is just around the next corner, or over the next rise". If you catch a sunrise on thepeak, your absolutely lucky. We've been to the top 8 times and have seen one sunrise.
This is surely not your "Sandals" vacation. I will be difficult for 'all-inclusive' tourist to make the peak, especially with only one week of vavcation. This may be the point: Take more than a week In Jamaica and stay somewher other than the beach.
Yah mon.

“experience a rain forest, the Blue Mountains with James”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

For a unique experience in becoming at one with nature, watch the clouds drift in and out of the valleys and peaks in the Blue Mountains. Don't drive yourself,the roads are terrifying, but the views are heavenly. Hire James Lafayette at 396-0440 as your driver to negotiate the twists and turns of these spectacular roads in the sky. He is reliable, helpful, and always on time.He'll meet all your taxi needs. We saw some jungle like highways, and river roads between Ocho Rios and KIngston that were also memorable. Tell him Marianne sent you.

“It's such Blue Mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

I love hiking to the peak. it's so refreshing to breathe the unpolluted atmosphere of this elfin mountain. The small community lifestyle of the mountains is a relief from the hustles of tourist halts and offers a side not often traveled.

“You Must Go Through The Blue Mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

If you are travelling in and out of Kingston, be sure to hire a driver to take you through the blue mountains. Stop in at a coffee plantation (Mrs Twymann's if you can). Stay a night or two at the Mount Edge Guest House. Hike to a waterfall. Beautiful vistas.
