Near the base of which pass is this camping site?

 


Can you give us a clue, if the waterfall still exist these days?

So it was shot during the rainy season in 1995, so I would assume during the drier months there would not be a lot of flow.  However I would also assume that given the look of the falls it would flow for a good part of the year.  I have added another image to give the size of the falls.  

Here is a small bridge to the clue, and hopefully the answers will fly.

There's really nothing distinctive in the photo to give a clue for this one. I'm going with Nhlangeni Pass, not because of anything in the photo - but I have no clue what else the bridge could be referring to, other than Bridge Cave.

Well sleuthed Ghaz.  

The only issue now is that because this was such a long time ago, I am not sure if we after having gone up Umkomazi Pass, we came down the same way or we came down Nhlangeni Pass.  I dont recall this on the way up, though we were on the ridge.  So if anyone can confirm that this is not on the Umkomazi Pass, then it defiantly is Nhlangeni.

I almost broke the internet trying to paste a screenshot in here, and now I've double entered the screenshot.  :)

That shot with the tent reminded me of the rock formations in the Mkhomazi valley and the flat areas before you climb over the ridge to Birds nest cave. Then you made the mention of Bridge that Ghaz picked up on to confirm Vergelegen. 

Anyway based on a quick browse on google earth, the above is my guess.

@ Griff @Ghaz

Well Griff is actually more correct, although the the tent was on the other side of the river, closet to the bank.

A few days after posting the question I also did some sleuthing, and came up with that exact spot, which would mean then that we did come down Mkhomazi Pass after successfully climbing up to Thabana. Given that a number of months had passed since I had raised the question and Elinda asking where this spot was, I had completely forgotten that i had also done as Griff had done and spotted the actual site. Call it Covid fug if you want! Anyhow it is where Griff spotted it, or really dam close. So I think Griff is welcome to post a pic, or Ghaz whoever wants to...

Perhaps this should read guess what was happening on the 30 March last year at the vlei between Mweni and Rockeries Pass. I enjoy looking at google maps :) Not sure if these are tents, or a dagga train!

@Griff: seeing as you haven't posted anything a week later, I'll go with this:

What pass was I going up when I took this photo?
