Brukkaros mountain

135 km north of Keetmanshoop

Hiking up this mountain will take you about 7 hours if you are reasonably fit. You will be rewarded with a beautifull view of the valley and of crystals on the way up. It might be a bit dangerous since the parth is not well mainteined and a rescue mission will be difficult.
