Mt Mulanje in detail

Flights & getting there

The dirt road to Likhubula turns off the main sealed Blantyre–Mulanje road at Chitakale Trading Centre, about 2km northwest of the centre of Mulanje town – follow the signpost to Phalombe.

If you’re coming from Blantyre on the bus, ask to be dropped at Chitakale. From there, you can pick up a matola (pickup), minibus (MK1000) or bicycle taxi (MK700) to Likhubula. Alternatively you can walk (11km, two to three hours); it’s a pleasant hike with good views of the southwestern face of Mulanje on your right.
