Welcome to Gurúè
Floating like a hazy apparition amid sloping tea plantations, with the solid mass of Mt Namúli (2419m), Mozambique’s second-highest peak, standing sentinel in the background, Gurúè is a joy to behold, especially after the long and bumpy journey to get here. Rest assured: every bump is worth it. This is one of Mozambique's primary hiking areas, where you can stroll through tea plantations at sunset, take a picnic to a local waterfall, or address the steep (and sacred) slopes of Mt Namúli.
The laid-back town of Gurúè is a tad quieter than Mozambique’s typical transport hubs and feels relatively small. Within a day or two, you’ll likely be on nodding terms with half the population.
