KwaZulu Natal DestinationsWhite Mountain, Drakensberg

The area known simply as White Mountain lies in the midst of the central Drakensberg foothills not far southwest of Estcourt.

The more than pretty valley is obviously named after the White Mountain at whose feet it lies, a virtually solitary mountain that is situated just outside Giant's Castle Nature Reserve.

This part of the Drakensberg, aside from possibly being the most scenic part because of its beauty and access to mountains, also gives one easy access to the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park, a World Heritage Site. The White Mountain area is just one of the deep valleys that run down the face of these high mountain peaks providing hours of hiking, climbing and effortless views.

There is also an annual White Mountain Festival to look forward to. The acoustic music festival not only provides a host of live acts over five days, but is something of a family affair, promising other activities like a craft market, swimming, boating, fishing, and games to keep children amused. It coincides with Heritage Day and is held at White Mountain Lodge, roughly 200 kilometres from Durban.

But if you find yourself in the picturesque White Mountain valley at any other time of year, it is almost certain that what you will find is wide open spaces, glorious mountain views, riverine forests, hiking, boating, and plenty of outdoor adventure. And for those after something less strenuous, you can simply soak in the views.
