Cathedral Peak (Didima) borders on the upper Thukela area in the north and east, Lesotho in the west and Monk's Cowl in the south and is 32 000 hectares in extent. The area contains the magnificent Didima Valley with its many examples of San Rock art, it is a hiker's paradise offering routes that range from a few hours to several days.
The Didima Resort is set in a stunning mountain paradise bathed in scenic beauty with rivers, streams, waterfalls, grasslands and craggy cliffs. The Resort's accommodation is uniquely style, symbolic of the dwellings of the San people who once lived in these mountains. Didima celebrates the now lost culture of the San people and captures something of their oneness with their environment. Their art has been accurately reproduced and can be viewed at the San Rock Centre as well as in small shelters found throughout the Park.
