The Nkhoma Mountain hike up is relatively easy, however it is recommended to plan your hike around the summer or less humid seasons. This is because the trail is clearer and easier to follow than when foliage is thick and high during the rainy season. Remember to bring water enough and take a short break at the mountain hut which is at the midpoint as temperatures rises as the day goes on. After the hut, the terrain becomes even more challenging as you mostly have to use your hands to overcome the rocky part of the terrain. Be sure to do some quick stretches to loosen your body before the hike to prevent terrible aches after the hike.
