We do sometimes walk for periods on plateaus or contours, but generally speaking, we are ascending or descending.
Usually, we do not follow well-delineated footpaths, but the trail is usually not too difficult. Walking is usually comfortable, but sometimes we need to go more significant distances over quite challenging patches.
Because the distances we cover on these hikes are medium, we set a reasonable pace, so a fair level of fitness is required.
An Intermediate Drakensberg Hike will take you on a significant adventure; it will stretch your boundaries a bit...but you will definitely carry the achievement with you for the rest of your life!
