This beautiful tarred pass of over 9km in length sweeps with gracious curves through the dense plantations east of Sabie in the Lowveld. It is the main road connecting Sabie with Hazyview. Although it only gains 197m in altitude and has a gentle average gradient of only 1:46, there some steep sections at 1:6. Most of the passes in this area are subject to frequent mountain mist conditions and as with all the other passes, we also put a cautionary on this pass in terms of the high dangers of driving in low visibility conditions.

Master Orientation Map

Master Orientation Map We are as passionate about maps as we are about mountain passes. A good map is a thing of beauty that can transport you into the mists of time or get your sense of adventure churning. It is a place to make discoveries about deserts and seas, mountains and lakes; of roads leading into places you have not been before; a place to pore over holiday destinations or weekend camping trips. A map is your window to the world.
