Thoroughly enjoyed this trail last month. It was our last stop in South Africa and well worth the effort getting there. It is not a difficult trail -- quite shorter than the 8 miles stated -- and you do need a good head for exposure while on the ladders. I recommend bringing scree gloves that provide some degree of grip on the metal rungs. There's a gully option you can choose in lieu of the ladders. To me it looked much more difficult. Our guide said it can quickly turn dangerous during a rain.

We went during the dry season and we expected Tugela Falls to be be dry. However, anyone wishing to see the falls should remember it is seasonal!

Amazing views all round, slept at the top for a night and it was incredible. Mornings are to die for when the clouds come in.

This is a great day hike to do from Thendele. Well marked and not steep.

The first few miles is typical Berg hiking up the valley, through open country and a few forests. The hike should really be called the Gorge hike (as its marked in the reserve’s signs), and hiking up the gorge at the end is a must. You pass through the steep-sided gorge, with spectacular views up to Amphitheatre, and can swim in the pools carved in the rock.

Watch out of flash floods and speak to the rangers before hiking up the gorge though.

We summited the Mount Aux Sources on the 28 January 2018. Its breathtaking to walk until the Ampithetre and the view from the Top its amazing.
