Ladismith is situated in the Little Karoo at the foot of the Klein Swartberg range. Superbly set against the mountains and overlooked to the north by some of the finest peaks of the Swartberge. Directly above the town soars the 2130m high Toringberg ("tower mountain" because of its steep cliffs and its sharp peak).
To the west stands one of the most famous mountains in Southern Africa, the majestic Towerkop (bewitched peak) 2203m high, with it split peak, and looms above the town. Local legend has it that an angry witch, flying overhead, struck the peak with her wand, causing the split. The peak changes marvelously and looks bewitchingly different to the tourist from every angle.
