A challenging circular walk that starts with sweeping views from a high ridge before following a riverbed down through a narrow gorge back to the start. The middle section involves traversing a narrow section of the gorge using a chain attached to the cliff wall. Wild animals are frequently sighted near the trail.

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.
