Do make the effort to go up the pass. The views from the top are truly stunning, getting a view of the valley and surrounding mountains.

“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

It really is stunning. Just remember you have to contend with cyclists and large trucks and there is very little space. The views are just awesome

“Beatifull scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is a pass well worth traveling. The road between Stellenbosch and Fransch Hoek, is very scenic with the mountains, vineyards and olive groves.
