The Eastern Cape, with its breathtaking and unspoiled scenery, is littered with hidden gems and hiking trails that will take your breath away. One such trail is the Amatola trail. Once voted by Getaway Magazine as the best trail in South Africa, the Amatola Trail is one for the bucket list. This spectacular 100km, 6 day/5 night adventure starts at Maden Dam, near King Williams Town, past the spectacular flat-topped Hogsback Mountains all the way into the picturesque village of Hogsback itself. Amatola trail is also known as the waterfall trail, owing to an abundance of waterfalls found along the way, coupled by mountain pools, as well as the ancient, indigenous rainforest which makes up more than half the route Hike from hut to hut through a varied landscape of mountains and forest, stop for picnics or a swim and enjoy the pools and waterfalls. Be warned though, this hike is definitely not for the faint hearted, physical fitness is a must as it’s quite challenging, but it’s definitely worth it. We love this snap @i.am.heleon thank you. #MeetSouthAfrica #TravelSouthAfrica #Travelgram #EasternCape #ExploreSouthAfrica #ThisIsSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica
