Cathedral Peak is a 3kms high mountain in the Drakensberg Mountain range in western KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The mountain is where road travel ends and walking begins, and the hues of the steep cliffs and cascading waterfalls change as the sun moves overhead. The high altitude ushers in champagne air with only the occasional baboon bark heard for miles.
Reaching Cathedral Peak is via a well maintained road network from the main centres, however, the last stretch to the resorts and hotels around the mountain is over a gravel road.
In summer, the area experiences high rainfall and warm temperatures averaging 21° Celsius, while winters are cool and dry with regular snow on the peaks.
The facilities offered in the Cathedral Peak area are ideal for corporate events and weddings – the mountain backdrop rivals any setting for photographs of your big day, while for leisure seekers, this region is truly an outdoor paradise.
