“Spectacular views”
Review of Franschhoek Pass

Franschhoek Pass
Ranked #3 of 54 things to do in Franschhoek
Certificate of Excellence

This pass is well worth the effort of experiencing. Coming from Cape Town, take the 4 passes route and start with Sir Lowry's pass outside Somerset West, then Viljoen's pass, Franschhoek Pass and Helshoogte Pass down to Stellenbosch on your way home. The road winds and climbs and gives stunning views of the countryside,the dam and Franschhoek valley.

We went through the mist, and visibility was really bad. Sadly we missed the beautiful views so will have to do this again sometime.

The Franschhoek valley is a truly beautiful valley and the best way to view it is from the pass. Franschhoek is a great food and wine destination

Scary, twisty road! But views spectacular, and plenty of places to park up for photos. Also saw baboons on roadside.
