A great introduction to the Namib mountains, this circular trail offers views over the park as well as traversing a narrow gorge. Allow at least three hours, as some sections are slow-going.

Stop at Dune 45 in Namib-Naukluft National Park on the way to Sossusvlei. There is a small parking area at the foot of the dune. Hikers generally follow the ridge up to the top of the dune. The soft sand and elevation gain make the hike a bit strenuous. Be sure to bring plenty of water and it's best to start early in the day before it gets too hot.
