A look back at some of the best sightseeing in the Blue Mountains

A look at some highlights from some of our favorite events around the Blue Alps. 

The Blue Mountains National Park has always been an attractive destination for sightseers in the Western Cape province, especially for those seeking to view the natural wonders of the Blue Mountain Range. 

A visitor can walk along the Blue Hill Trail, and explore the Blue Mounds and the Black Mountain, or they can explore the beautiful lakes, streams, forests and grassy meadows of the region. 

As well as having the best wildlife in the region, the Blue mountains also boast a number of interesting attractions, including a large number of caves, a range of wildlife-rich streams, caves and a large natural cave network. 

In fact, the region is a real treasure trove for sightseekers, especially when it comes to visiting caves. 

Many of these caves can be visited on foot, and you can take in the sights as you go. 

But if you’re looking for a longer trip, then the Blue Alpine Mountains National Recreation Area (BAMRA) is a great option. 

Located in the northern part of the Cape, BAMRA offers visitors an array of recreational opportunities, including hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, biking and horseback and water sports. 

There are also several swimming beaches in the area, including Lake Louise and Lake Mungo, as well as several hiking trails. 

The Blue Mountains also boast one of the world’s largest geothermal springs, which is located on the slopes of the mountain. 

There are also some lovely lakes dotted around the area. 

This area is also home to the Cape River, which flows through the Blue Hills and is one of South Africa’s most important rivers. 

It flows into the Atlantic Ocean, and has a unique catchment that contains a significant amount of fish. 

With the abundance of water in this area, it is a good place to spend a day or two relaxing on the water. 

 The Red Hill Trail runs through the area and is located just a few minutes from Cape Town. 

While the trail is not as long as other trails in the park, it can be enjoyed by a group of four or more, and is a well-loved part of our Blue Mountains experience. 

One of the most interesting features of the Red Hill is the Blue Rocks waterfall. 

A spectacular feature, this waterfall has been photographed several times, but it has only been photographed twice since 2008. 

Its popularity has been attributed to its spectacular fall colouration, and this waterfall is the only one that can be photographed from this area.

The Blue Mountain National Park offers a range. 

You can see many of the sights at this park, and even catch a glimpse of the famous Blue Mountain at sunset. 

In addition, there are numerous nature trails that you can hike, including the famous Tromsø, Middelberg and Tromso Nature Trails. 

Finally, there is a fantastic view of the blue mountains from the Cape Town Tower, a sight that you should not miss. 

Whether you are a newbie or an experienced bushwalker, this is one park to be seen.
