Burnt Mountain

   

Burnt Mountain

Burnt Mountain is in a south-easterly direction from Twyfelfontein and is really a hill at the foot of a 12km long volcanic ridge. Nothing grows in this rather desolate area. It was proclaimed a national monument in the Official Gazette because 'it was of a certain barren mountain there which, with a unique play of colours on its slopes and surfaces during morning and evening hours, proved a highlight in the otherwise monotonous landscape around Twyfelfontein'.

The farm is situated 70km west of Khorixas in the Kunene District. Over the road from the Burnt Mountain parking area is a path that leads to a gorge which contains what is know as the Organ Pipes, a 100m long feature of unusual 4m high dolomite columns. The Burnt Mountain was proclaimed a national monument on 15th September 1956.
