Glorious morning sunrise from our room at The Cavern …
On this particular morning, hubby and I decided not to walk a trail, but drive around the mountain and out of The Cavern’s valley to the Amphitheatre. I have taken many photographs of this magnificent part of the Berg but it’s just too majestic not to take more!!! It’s like visiting Cape Town with Table Mountain .. one never gets tired of looking at it and/or capturing it’s splendour
” The Amphitheatre is over 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) in length and has precipitous cliffs rising approximately 1,220 metres (4,000 ft) along its entire length. The bottom of the valley floor, from where many photographs of the mountain structure are taken, is over 1,830 metres (6,000 ft) below the highest point of the amphitheatre (the summit being over 3,050 metres (10,000 ft) above sea level—with Mont-Aux-Sources just over 3,254 metres (11,000 ft) above sea level). The Tugela Falls, the world’s second tallest falls, plunge over 948 metres (3,100 ft) from the Amphitheatre’s cliff tops.” … quote from Wikipedia

Hubby and I drove to the Mont aux Sources Hotel for tea. We’ve stayed there a couple of times many years ago. Splendid view of the Amphitheatre from here ..
