When going on a hike please ensure you have a map which can be purchased from most of the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife regional reserves or at the head office in Pietermaritzburg.
This guide to Hiking in the Drakensberg may alsobe of assistance especially if your first hike. A list of the caves and phone numbers that can be booked is available hereand an example of the Mountain Rescue Register can be downloaded here.
A relatively easy day hike for the family (probably 8 and above). A steep hill on the way to the hut but almost all downhill after. The views from the hut looking back towards Highmoor and into the valley below are worth while.
Sadly the hut burnt down and is not in use at the moment. The last image in the gallery shows what the hut once looked like. Hopefully in time it will be repaired to its former glory, it would be a wonderful place to sleep over for the night, the sunrise in the morning into the valley would be stunning to see.
