Originally called Stuartstown, the Zulu name Ixopo however prevailed...thanks to its perfect example of onomatopoeia - the sound of cattle squelching through the mud - provided, of course, you pronounce it with the correct 'click'! This implied dampness refers in the main too often misty altitudes of almost 2 000m above sea level.
The surrounding countryside is incredible, and one can find many hiking trails and a few beautiful waterfalls along the Mzimkulu and Mkhomazi rivers
Two 19th century churches and a seminary are still operational in Ixopo, but there are two other landmarks which further enhance the area's spiritual tradition and reputation - a floodlit cross bestowing peace and goodwill on the town and, at the nearby Buddhist Retreat Centre, a tall reliquary radiating wisdom and compassion to the valleys below.
