Tugela Falls are situated in the Dragon's
Mountains in the Royal Natal National Park in KwaZulu-Natal
Province of South Africa. Tugela Falls is a second largest waterfall in
the World after
Angel Falls in Venezuela. The best time to visit this
magnificent natural wonder is between June and September.
Tugela falls in a narrow ribbon from the eastern cliff of the
Dragon Mountains, in the Royal Natal National Park, Kwazulu-Natal
Province, South Africa. It is clearly visible after heavy rain or at
the end of the day, shining from the reflection of the Sun. The
source of the Tugela River is located in Mont-Aux-Sources a few
kilometers from the cliff from which the waterfall falls. The water
above the waterfall is clean and safe to drink. The cliff is often
covered with snow in the winter months.
Two paths lead to the
waterfall. One mountain hiking trail to the top of Mount-Aux-Sources
begins at the parking lot in Witsieshoek, from where there is a
relatively short climb to the top along the path and further along
two suspension bridges. Another trail begins at the Royal Natal
National Park. A seven-kilometer climb along the gorge meanders
through the local forest, then a jump through boulders and a small
suspension bridge will lead to the foot of the Tugela Falls.
