What’s Right With Jamaica? The Blue Mountains

How thankful are Jamaicans for Jamaica? It’s a wonderful country teeming with enthusiasm, brilliance, talent and heritage as lush as our verdant landscapes. There is much in this little island to be grateful for, and here at diGJamaica, we don’t need a holiday or observance to celebrate Jamaica … we believe in celebrating the uniqueness of this country all year round. Follow our What’s Right With Jamaica series to see our weekly highlight of something refreshingly special in the island.

The Blue Mountain Peak is 7,402 feet or 2,256 metres above sea level, and is the highest point in Jamaica. Apart from the breathtaking views, the Blue Mountains boasts some of the most unique flora and fauna in the island, the Caribbean, and the world.
The Easter lily blooms a lovely purplish blue flower during the Easter time (March/April). This field of Easter lilies is a sight for sore eyes on the hike up the Blue Mountains.
Ferns are a staple on the Blue Mountains. They are every shade of green imaginable!
Dense rainforests are a prominent feature of much of the Blue Mountain trail.
