VISITING MOUNT BUFFALO IN MAY
Our Mountain is amazing in the Autumn, but it is getting colder so make sure that you bring some warm clothes as the alps are normally 10 degrees cooler than Bright and the Alpine valleys. There are still enough warm days for rock climbing and abseiling in the gorge, bushwalking or a bike ride.
