  • 6042.jpg

hlathima passA hike of 7 to 8 hours over 16 km's and 1 447m uphill, this is a difficult hike. The hike begins at Lotheni Camp, follows the Ngodwini River and ascends up to the contour path. The Hlathimbe Pass itself is very steep, doing the hike to the top over 2 days is a good option.

A map and a garmin or phone with the tracks are highly recommended.
