Diepgezet Ghost Town

Incredibly this magnificent gravel pass is not officially named by any government authority at the time of writing.

The well-designed pass twists and turns its way laboriously through 738 meters of altitude through the mountains just two kilometers from the Swaziland border to summit at a T-junction with the R40 south of Barberton.

In terms of altitude gained, this pass will slot in at the 14th highest nationally. The pass provides dramatic views of towering mountains and green valleys and takes us past an old forgotten mining town – Diepgezet.

In dry weather, the pass can be driven in a 4×2 “bakkie”, but good ground clearance is important. In wet weather, we recommend a 4×4.
