When in Franschhoek, you must take a drive up the mountain and over the pass. The views are tremendous. Do keep an eye out for the local inhabitants - the baboons, they do tend to scurry across the road.

The drive from Franschhoek across to Hermanus uses some wonderful roads and the scenery changes.

There are few spots that you can stop the car and take photos. The scenery along the pass is breath-taking.

I bike this at least once every year. Technically very demanding and not for fools!!! Sweeping bends of very high technicality and the views are absolutely awesome. Numerous lookouts for those that want to take photo`s of the Franschhoek Valley below.

We drove through the Pass when coming back to Franschhoek from Hermanus, via Villersdorp, and the views were magnificent. We were lucky that the clouds had disappeared and there is an amazing viewpoint as you come down the mountain and into the valley itself.
