Valley of Desolation

The Valley of Desolation, 14 kilometres from Graaff-Reinet, is an exquisite geological phenomenon which is characterised by sheer cliffs and columns of dolerite that rise up to 120 metres from the valley floor. This is the result of many years of volcanic and erosive forces. This breathtaking attraction can be absorbed by car, during hikes along marked trails or at picnic sites.
