Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife has been obliged to closed the popular Mike's Pass 4x4 route at Cathedral Peak in the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site with immediate effect.
Consistently heavy rains have fallen in the area for many days, resulting in landslides on sections of the Pass.
For the record, there is a direct hiking trail short-cutting the zig-zag section on Mike's Pass, for what it's worth. It re-joins the road further up. Also, I'm under the vague impression that Rainbow Gorge can be walked-out, though I've never gone further than the chockstone. That wouldn't be a huge help maybe, and probably not a great option for winter.
Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.
