Karoo - Day6 Leg6 - Looking down

From the top of the most twisty section of the pass, you cannot but pull over to stop to take in what you have just ridden up. The views are incredible. One thing you notice is that there is very little evidence of any other human activity other than the road itself. No houses, no farms, no telephone wires, nothing, just the road and the mountains for miles. All you hear is the wind and not much else either.

It's a beautiful place. If you stand there for a while you might even spot some buck, although we have mostly seen them on the decent side of the mountain going in the direction we were on this trip, towards Outdshoorn.

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours and motorbike hire on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
