Peak Formosa, at 1675m above sea level, is the highest peak in the Tsitsikamma mountains. This route is at the very top of my bucket list right now!
Getting there: The turnoff is situated on the R62 between Louterwater and Krakeelrivier, just east of Joubertina. The roads are gravel but in good condition and can be travelled by a normal car.

The trailhead is on a private farm. To gain access, you must make an arrangement with the farmer. The farmer also requires that you take a guide along with you; the guide is one of his employees.
