    Default Lesotho - Langalibalele & Jarateng Rivers

    In early Jan 2014 a couple of us hiked up into lesotho to checkout the Langalibalele & Jarateng rivers, was a long slog up the mountain:



    We eventually made it over the escarpment, and found some pretty landscape:



    And some nice water:



    Also found some trout:





    All-in-all it was a great experience, highly recommended

    Well done guys. Not only on the full day hike in, but the fish and brilliant pics .

    P.S. Tell Andrew I am waiting for ALL the pics.
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    sure, we accessed the escarpment from the Giants Castle area. There are numerous passes up, so its a matter of picking one (we went up Langalibalele Pass, followed the Langalibalele river to the confluence with the Jarateng, then hiked up the Jarateng Valley and descended Jarding Pass), covering about 38km over three days. there is a path some of the way from the KZN side, but for the most part no paths (map and compass required).

    Andrew had a rough time with a nasty blister and some rather large baboons ... not sure if he got pics of either though?

    He did get some pretty browns in the Bushmans however
