Up Arangiekop again!

With my first year of university behind me, it’s time to return to Arangieskop. What a spectacular hike it was!  

Arangieskop is a peak of the Langeberg mountain range (literally meaning long mountains) near the town of Robertson, Western Cape. The ascent is steep but takes you through pristine mountain fynbos and through a ravine where you can stop for snacks and take a swim! You overnight on the very snug hut on top of the mountain. Day two you summit and take the long and steep decent down to the Robertson wine valley below.

The morning of the final ascent, we saw the most beautiful sunrise above a blanket of clouds covering the valleys below.

Enjoy the video and if you ever get the chance, endeavor to ascent this peak!

  1. Hello Jacques ek sien nes ek het jy ‘n avontuurlike streep. Geniet dit en gaan mal op jou ouderdom. Later met vrou en kinders is dit nie meer so maklik nie, maar ek probeer nog, gaan maar oor mens se ingesteld. ek beplan nog opvolg vir beide die storie oor die myn en 1ste en 2de waterval. Moet nog die Arangiekop ding doen. Wou nog jou bedank het dat jy my gevolg het. Dankie!

    1. My plesier, Abrie! Dankie vir die wyse raad en ook vir die ondersteuning. Tans geniet ek die studentelewe so veel as kan. Die natuur bied altyd iets vir almal, so moenie ophou om daardeur geinspireer te word nie! Velle est posse.
