HAH Girls Visit The Valley of Desolation

On Sunday afternoon, 8 September, Mrs Lehesta Galloway took the Herby Arnott House girls to view the geological phenomenon that is the Valley of Desolation.

The Camdeboo National Park’s most popular sight, the Valley of Desolation – often called β€˜The Cathedral of the Mountains’ – is a hauntingly beautiful valley with outstanding views featuring rugged, piled dolerite columns set against the backdrop of the endless Karoo plains.

From the nearby Toposcope viewpoint, which was also visited by the girls, Graaff-Reinet can be viewed in its entirety from above, nestled in a bend of the Sundays River.
