Platberg, is known as the Free State’s own “Table Mountain” and it overlooks
the town, Harrismith.
It literally means the flat-mountain; the 2394m high mountain is a landmark & forms an imposing backdrop to the town.
The surface area covers approximately 3000ha and the slopes are steep with numerous vegetated gullies and boulder green slopes below vertical cliffs that are 20m to 45m high. It is an extension of the eastern foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains.

and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible
before handing it on to future generations.
