Sentinel Peak and Tugela Falls

This hike takes you to the top of Tugela Falls. You’ll be climbing up the Amphitheatre via the famous chain ladders, and looking out over its impressive valley floor, almost 1 km (~ 0.62 miles) below.

Tugela Falls is the world’s highest waterfall, plunging a whopping 948 m ( 3,110 ft) off of the Mont-Aux-Sources plateau into the valley below. It’s not 1 drop though, rather 5 leaps. Tugela Falls gets its name from the Zulu word “Thukela”, meaning “sudden”.
