27 April @ 7:00 am - 28 April @ 3:00 pm
We’ll meet early (7am) on Saturday morning at the Krom Hut car park and then walk in to the hut where we’ll take a short break. From there we’ll head up over KromRiver Dome and onto the vlakte, where there are rock pools to swim and we’ll stop for lunch and a long break.
After lunch, we’ll head over the ridge towards Slanghoek and down into Springstygbeugel by mid afternoon, with time to explore the area or take a dip in the stream closeby before we setup camp for the night. After breakfast on Sunday, we’ll hike down to Junction poll for another break and swim. From Junction pool, we’ll hike back up the valley along the Witteriver, back to the Krom Hut and then back to the car park, to finish.
This is a relatively easy hike of about 12hrs (total) walking at an easy/moderate pace with lots of time to relax and enjoy the rock pools. Most of the height-gain is on the first day and the second day is easier. Wild-camping so you will need all the necessary equipment, including tent.
