Contest #614: The Edge Labyrinth, Hogsback, Eastern Cape, South Africa

Approximate location: 32°36’10.0″S 26°55’02.5″E

The Edge Mountain Retreat is a resort area nestled in the Amathole Mountains. The Edge boasts amazing views of the surrounding countryside, lots of open spaces, and the world’s largest labyrinth in the mode of the one at Chartres Cathedral in France.

A labyrinth is similar to a maze, with some significant differences. Meditative in nature, a labyrinth is not a puzzle so much as a path, a journey to and from the center. The path is tedious but easy to follow with no dead ends.

Large labyrinths like this are often the site of weddings and commitment ceremonies
