The Mountain Club of Malawi is a social hiking club for citizens and residents of Malawi. It aims to encourage and assist people to make the most of the unique opportunities that Malawi provides. Malawi has many beautiful mountains that can offer more gently walks or challenging terrain and support a wide variety of flora and fauna, rivers and pools.
The Mulanje Massif is one of Malawi’s most beautiful mountain areas. The many spiritual beliefs associated with it are fascinating to learn about and should be respected. The nine huts on the mountain owned by the Forestry Department and maintained by the Mountain Club and the Mulanje Mountain Conservation Trust (MMCT) enable Club members to enjoy Mulanje to the full. Full details of hut facilities, routes, hiking times, etc, are provided on the website.
Sadly, all Malawi's mountain areas are increasingly threatened by population pressure and the destruction of natural resources. MMCT is working to find ways to protect the biodiversity and beauty of Mulanje, while at the same time developing and supporting realistic alternatives for the communities that depend on its resources.
