An impressive sight of sheer granite cliffs, Mount Mulanje rises 3000m above the surrounding plains below. It's known as the 'Island in the Sky' by locals as when the mist rises, it envelops the mountain, leaving only the peak which seemingly floats high above the ground. With lush forest carpet valleys and waterfalls, it's a picturesque area home to a number of wildlife species.
