The rugged mountains and deep, green valleys of the Bastervoetpad Pass
are strongly reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands, with icy winters and
mild summers. This pass rates high amongst the top 10 high altitude passes of the Eastern Cape..
Officially named the Dr Lapa Munnik Pass, the Bastervoetpad Pass is located between the summit of the Barkly Pass and Ugie and traverses a southern arm of the Drakensberg along the east-west axis.
