Where I live there are no mountains close by. Unfortunately. I love to just stare at mountains, drinking in the beauty, the change of light, change of seasons in a short time frame. The overwhelming size. The silence. The cool air….
I do have favourites when it comes to mountains and right on top of that list: The Drankensberg Mountains
We had to sign in at the ranger on duty before we could start our hike and to get a map of the area. The Drakensberg Mountains have notoriously fickle weather and many hikers needed to be rescued or even died.
We experienced the Drakensberg at its best. All seasons in one day. After descending for more than two hours we made it back to the base to check out. Soaking wet, but truly happy and fulfilled!
