Drakensberg is located more or less in the middle between Johannesburg and Durban and spreads over South Africa and Lesotho (a country that few months ago I had no idea about yet now I’ve already been there:)). The highest peak reaches 3,482 meters, the second highest waterfall in the world (948 meters of free fall) can be found there too. Drakensberg seems to be still untouched and undiscovered, there were hardly any people around and the views were just breathtaking.
I spent 48 hours in Drakensberg (though I’d love to stay there longer) and I loved every second of it. The hostel was located in the middle of nowhere, there were only wide meadows around and majestic mountains in the background. The sunset over Drakensberg was one of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever seen. The silence in the night was so huge it kind of hurt the ears. The remote road to Lesotho, even if crazily bumpy offered incredible views that took my breath away. The hike up to the mountain to see bushmen paintings wasn’t very challenging but left me speachless for a long time.
