Mont-Aux-Sources, Drakensberg, lies high on the north-east edge of the Drakensberg Mountain Range, where the mountains rise majestically towards the sky in a massive amphitheatre of imposing rock. The Drakensberg amphitheatre is an impressive 5km wall of rock of which Mont-Aux-Sources is a part, and although Mont-Aux-Sources itself is a large and rather unspectacular bulging rock squatting on the rim of the Drakensberg, it's a thing of spectacular beauty. Regarded as one of the highest Drakensberg mountains, Mont-Aux-Sources offers climbers an intimidating challenge with access to the Mont-Aux-Sources summit only via two chain ladders, then rewards them with an astounding view of the Tugela Falls, the second highest waterfall in the world, that falls about 3000 metres in five cascades. Flowing from Mont-Aux-Sources is the Tugela River, KwaZulu-Natal's largest river, as well as several tributaries of the 2000km long Orange River, on its journey westward to the Atlantic Ocean.
