Residents travelling along Du Toitskloof Pass were pleasantly surprised today as a number of bountiful waterfalls could be seen flowing down the mountainside, thanks to the ongoing rainy weather.
Limietberg Nature Reserve in the Du Toitskloof mountains is known for offering some of the best hiking trails in the province. The popular Krom River Waterfall trail allows visitors to take in the beauty of this peaceful waterfall but it is not often that the mountainside is graced by more than one flowing stream and even more rare that they can be seen from the roadside.
Du Toitskloof Pass runs between Paarl and Worcester and is known for being one of the most breathtaking passes in the province if not the country. While the slopes and hills are what makes the pass, a few stunning waterfalls are always a pleasing addition.
A number of waterfalls were spotted spouting from the rocky outcrops along the pass today as downpours filled the natural landscapes with rainwater.
Those who had the pleasure of spotting the rare sight in person had no choice but to stop and stare as the captivating image left them without words.
While the rain may leave some areas in disarray, flooded or worse for ware, the mountainside in the Western Cape is always ready to welcome showers and the beauty it allows when it does is something worth admiring.
