Tolletjie se Poort is a minor pass/poort of 1,9 km with two false summits that conencts with Koppie se Nek in the north and the Ouberg Pass in the south forming a continuous back to back pass with both of them. The two false summits are each separated by a stream crossing. The gradients reach 1:14 in places which make this poort suitable for all vehicles.

When driving this poort, in reality it neither resembles the typical features of a poort (a road that follows the course of a river) nor a pass as there are no sharp corners, no cuttings or steep drop-offs. However, it is an official pass and is marked as such on the government maps.

If you're a pass hunter, you had better enter the GPS coordinates of this one, otherwise you might not even notice it, especially if travelling from south to north, as you will have just ascended the impressive Ouberg Pass. This poort starts exactly at the summit point of the Ouberg Pass.

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.
