Of course the first thing we did was visit Echo Point and the Three Sisters. The three sisters is well known and are three separate rock formations. After doing our tourist thing and getting some pictures we picked a walking trail and walked along the canyon. The views are amazing and with the path turning from the edge into the rain forest you get a nice diverse experience. We also walked the way to the three sisters and it's even possible to get onto the first one with a ramp.
Like many other sights, people tend to flock to the known sights. Although the views are great and you certainly have to do a walk at Echo Point, other lookouts maybe are even better. In 2006 there were some huge forest fires on the north-side of the Blue Mountains, so we couldn't do any real walks, since everything was closed. We visited Evans Lookout and Govetts Leap. At Govetts Leap it was possible to do a walk along the rim, giving a nice view from all sides of this "side-canyon". There are several falls here, which could give a great view when supplied with enough rain. The views we got from the lookouts alone where amazing enough to let you wondering how amazing a trip through this part would be. If you really can spare the time, it's possible to do a multiple day trek trough this area, as there are several campsites.
If you visit the Blue Mountains, don't only stop at Echo Point. Visit the rest! Or you'll be missing out on the best stuff.
