Greener Pastures: What Lies Beyond Durbs

Greener Pastures: What Lies Beyond Durbs
Submitted by kliktrak on Wednesday, February 21, 2007 - 20:23

This last weekend was a "get outta town" one, that had me on the road at 4:45am on route to the Northern Berg for a hike and overnight in Xeni Cave, in the Cathedral Peak area.

So what lies beyond the boundaries of good ol' 'Thekweni? This trip in particular sampled some spectacular views and amazing natural wonders!

Well I think this is more what you would call a "photo essay", I think the pics speak for themselves!

The hike was organised by the Durban based Mountain Backpackers Club (see their website HERE), who are one of the oldest and most active Berg hiking clubs in SA.

The experience was simply awesome and scenery spectacular, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are a few summarising the trip. The pain I am feeling now (especially my calf muscles – eina!) was well worth it!

Great pics, looks like a fine adventure! The berg is amazing, I need to get there more often. Last time I went was for New Year's, camping at Royal Natal. Fantastic experience (not counting the torrential flooding all night on the 31st).
