Walks in Nyanga

Here are links to four or five walks that you should consider seriously in order to fully explore the town of Nyanga. There is much more to offer than stopping to pick up provisions.

Viewed from Troutbeck

First: Nyamhuka Hill. One hour at most will get you up and back with some of the best photos ever on your phone or camera. I’m sure the special ‘selfie’ cameras will be in use too!

Swinging round towards ‘the government’ residential area and the Connemara – World’s View escarpment

Second: Bepe Peak. Three hours or more. Fairly easy to get up, if you are fit, from the end of the Bepe Park road.

Third: The adventure day – Nyamakanga Mountain. Five hours. Route finding required through the lower sections on the way up. Just look at the pictures though:

Walk four will take you up from Nyanga onto the escarpment in the Connemara area. Slight scramble required at the top.

Aloes at the first plateau. Nyamakanga Mountain beyond – centre left
As seen from the first plateau – the steep section ending in a short scramble to reach the plateau
and the view back down (Rupurara in the centre – middle distance)

Then there is Nyanga Rock. One for you to figure out.

Enjoy! Summary page for these walks.
