“A PASS WITH A VIEW”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Great road surface, even better hair pin bends with spectacular views. Only thing missing was the sound of an open exhaust on my Duke.

“A journey for each visit”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Take time to go rough this pass, good views, mountains, valleys and lakes.
Take care of lorries, use only the stopping areas for those most important photographs.
Enjoy

“Stunning and lovely”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

No matter which direction you drive, the views are stunning. Lovely views in both directions. Easy to drive the road is in excellent condition and some hidden parking spaces are inviting.

“Just to reiterate.......Fabulous!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

I hate heights and sheer drops next to the road but I wouldn't have missed this for the world! To begin with I steeled myself against nerves but quickly realised the roads are excellent, the driving standards equally so and the views worth battling with my concerns. Feel the fear and do it anyway!

“Jaw dropping”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Fantastic scenery, great roads and plenty of places to stop and take photos. Be carefully of the baboons, they just lay in the road and don't get out of the car near them.
