Mount Lebanon Hike

391The longest of all the hikes from Highmoor Camp rewarded with great views along the way. Mount Lebanon Peak can be viewed from the Highmoor Campsite. The peak is 2 153 m high.

In the gallery you will see how the small Kamloops Dam had overflowed from a short downpour a little earlier, always keep an eye on the weather when hiking and be prepared as conditions can change very quickly in the Drakensberg.

Once you reach Mount Lebanon the views are almost 360 degree views and looking back you will see the Highmoor Campsite behind you (South West).

Directions

From the Highmoor Reserve car park head North West towards a gate and turn right at the sign. After 250m going downhill cross the stream over the wooden bridge and after another 250m on after the stream crossing take the path to the right which leads to the small Kamloops Dam wall. Once past the dam, take the right path (the left path leads to Aasvoelkrans cave) which leads gently uphill and towards your right.

Follow the path over the 1st hill and down the next, then walk along the contours and finally up to the top of Mount Lebanon at 2153m.
