Hiking Boomslang Cave - Part 3 of 4

Having just come from the exit of the Boomslang cave, we walked about 15 minutes down the mountain to reach the Echo Valley path. This is where we turned left onto the path to follow the track again upwards in the direction of the valley.

Echo Valley is another wooden boardwalk built inbetween a Yellowwood forrest. I love these boardwalks and makes these walks so much more fun and interestingto explore.

The Echo Valley path come to a t-junction. This is where you turn right towards The Amphitheatre.

The 15 mintute route to The Amphitheatre must have been the most beautiful display of flowers I have seen on the mountain so far.

The Amphitheatre is an open space surrounded by the mountain from all sides. There is a stone cut beacon in the middle of the sandy pit - as you can see in the pic below. On this day it was very hot inside this wind break spot.
Once leaving The Amphitheatre, you follow the route on the left side of the mountain up towards Spes Bona Valley - I would say this was another 20 mintute walk to get to Spes Bona Valley.
