Amazing amazing hike - as good as it gets!

The waterfall is rain based.

The road goes all the way to the car park at the trailhead.

Caution: It is a VERY rugged road!

The elevation of the mountain creates its own weather system - be prepared for sudden rains and "white-outs" even when the weather prediction is for a clear sky.

The lodge nearby (witsieshoek) offers lifts to the car park for R100. well worth it...just call them to confirm the still offer the service.

Incredible trail along the edge of the Drakensberg escarpment. One of the best hikes around. The official trail consists of eight unmarked checkpoints but there is so much beautiful scenery that you won't go wrong by going off course. The views from the edge to the Underberg 4,000 feet below are unforgettable.

Typically hiked SOBO from the Sentinel Car Park to Bushman's Nek. Fees are required for Royal Natal National Park and Giant's Castle. All hikers should sign the Mountain Rescue Register at their point of entry. Amphitheatre Backpackers is a great stay either before or after your hike.

Absolutely stunning. We went up and down the gully route, which is quite a scramble, but is safe and well marked.

The trail is very well maintained, including being paved for the first two miles.
