The way of the cross, is set in a beautiful spot in Chilomoni Township, Blantyre Malawi. Follow the High street that takes you to St James Church (which you can not miss), and then follow the yellow signs, to the base of the mountain.
The 15 bronze plaque stations of the Cross direct you up the mountain, and takes you on a surreal journey, of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Even if you're not particularly religious it’s difficult not to feel touched by his journey. All the way up the top, there are signs, asking you to be quiet, as many people climb this mountain to pray, its' also a time where you can take time for yourself, be a one with nature. As you climb you can still see the locals at the base of the mountain busying about their day. The hooting of the mini buses and music is still a faint but distant sound.
Once at the top, its not only a breath taking view, but it's also amazing to be standing by the side of the 50ft high cross that over looks the township.
I've done this walk many times; any one can do it, even if you feel the climb might be too much, guides are available with a chair lift for the less energic among us. it’s definably good for the soul!
