The mountains are calling...will you answer? The Amathole Mountain Escape, encompassing the towns of Hogsback and Stutterheim, and the indescribable Amathole Mountains, is one of the Eastern Cape's most beloved regions - for those in the know. 

It's also a region that recalls stories of magic, fairies, toadstools and misty forests. Whether you believe that there are hobbits, grumpkins and snarks in these parts or simply enjoy the untouched beauty of the Afromontane forest, valley mists, towering trees and glistening waterfalls, Hogsback is a wonderland. 

Here are 12 photos that may convince you that there's magic in this golden air...
