FOUR Hillcrest High adventurers, and David Gay (MIC Adventure Sports) spent a long weekend at Sani Pass staying three nights at the Sani Mountain Lodge Backpackers.

They arrived in Lesotho via Phinong Pass, a hiking route just north of Sani Pass.
On the second day, as part of their acclimatisation, they climbed both of Hodgson's peaks.
These peaks form the Giant's Cup, a prominent feature of the escarpment in the Underberg area.
On the Saturday, they braved the sub-zero temperatures brought on by a strong wind, to climb Thabana Ntlenyana, the highest peak in southern Africa at 3 482 metres above sea level.
On the final day they returned to the warmer weather of South Africa by walking down Sani Pass, clocking up a total distance of 50km.
