I visited mount Mulanje when I was on 6th year at school it was such a beautiful and fascinating place. We visited the local villages around the mountain and the markets it is one experience that I am desperate to repeat again and I am sure I will. Would highly recommend a visit to any one

With a local guide (the daily fee of a guide is $ 25) we did two tours, not hard and which I highly recommend. The first to the plantations of tea ‘Lujeri’ (just south of Mount Mulanje). Spectacular!! (The path is easy and runs through the plantations. It can last from 3 hours up to 5 or 6. Your choice).... More

Probably one of the most beautiful natural sites in the world. The mountain dooms up as you drive in from Blantyre, Thyolo or Palombe. All the way around there are beautiful sights of the mountain.

I don't usually write reviews on trip advisor but felt this was necessary: First the good: 1. Went with two friends and spent 3 days, 2 nights. The Hike is tough. There is a lot of steep, vertical uphill portions that can be demanding, particularly on hot sunny days. It takes 2 days to summit. The hike down takes is... More

This table-top mountain is the steepest I have ever climbed, and I've climbed quite a few "hikable" mountains. The first day get you up through beautiful fields and then a steep climb which offers great views. Then up the table, there are several options and you can extend your hike for as many days as you want. We took a... More

There were lots of big rock to clamber over and there was some scramblying on the way up and some no pretty looking backward crab movements to get down.!! Unfortunately we went in the middle of...

I walked across Mount Mulanje for over a week with a group from The World Challenge. It can be quite challenging with steep hills and crumbly terrain. I recommend leaving early in the morning as it gets dark very quicker between destinations. At the top of the mountain, at night it gets extremely cold! Bring layers and lots of them!
