There is a 'lost world' a great island in the sky.  High on the plateau beneath & between many rocky peaks are numerous streams waterfalls & pools.  This pool is well known near a mountain hut. Many more require exploration away from the hiking routes.  #MulanjeMountain .. #Malawi #MountainPools #Hiking #Swimming #fbp #tw #fb #MountMulanje #MalawiPlaces

cori_on_the_road (Instagram) has a good shot from #Chambe Peak on #MulanjeMountain. (Chambe has the longest rock climb in Africa although you can't see it here). You can however see other peaks behind including #Namasele (distant far left) #Khuto (3rd highest peak on the mountain) #Matambale (possibly the most dangerous) & #Dzole plus several others.  In total the #MulanjeMassif has about 60 peaks. I only know of three people who have climbed them all. #fb #fbp #fbp #Malawi #MalawiPlaces
