Nestling in a valley in the picturesque Biggarsberg are the towns of Dundee and Glencoe. At the base of Indumeni mountain, the highest peak in the Biggarsberg range of mountains is Wasbank, a small town which time has appeared to pass by.
Indumeni means "where the thunder rolls" and the area around this mountain is Endumeni, hence the name of the municipal authority of this area.
Situated equidistant between Durban and Johannesburg, with well-established road, rail and air infrastructure, the Endumeni region is the geographic centre of Northern KwaZulu-Natal.
