Van Rhyns Pass

Van Rhyns PassOne of the ten major mountain passes constructed by the South African road engineer Thomas Bain linking Nieuwoudtville to Vanrhynsdorp. In the space of 8km the pass conveys the traveler across the Bokkeveld escarpment into a startlingly different world – from a semi-desert landscape to an arid plateau with trees and grasslands.

If you are a cyclist, why not start at the top and ride the 50 kms down to Vanrhynsdorp?
