One of a series of mountain pass driving videos showing technical, historical and GPS data in text overlay. The Blinkberg Pass (translated - Shining Mountain) is a long pass on the back road through the southern Cederberg. Together with the Grootrivier Pass, the two passes run concurrently for a distance of almost 20 kms through magnificent and rugged scenery. There are several places to stop for refreshments or to stay overnight. Mount Ceder is a 4 star establishment which comes highly recommended. The steepest parts of the Blinkberg Pass are tarred. Condition of these roads will vary according to the time of year, but always expect corrugations.

The Cape has a lot to thank him for in terms of how the region developed economically. the quality of his workmanship has truly stood the test of time with many of his works having become national monuments. Back in 1877 Bain reconnoitered the route on horseback and created the start of what is a marvellous, tarred road across the rugged Cederberg Mountains. The pass was only recently tarred (2011/2012) One of a series of videos feauturing mountain passes of South Africa, showing technical, historical and GPS data. This video features the entire (unofficial) pass starting just outside Clanwilliam and ending at the first farmhouse at the bottom of the Agter Pakhuis. Along the route there are several B&B and guest farm establishments, ranging from rustic all the way through to 6 star international quality. Every visitor should spend at least one night in the Cederberg and wonder at the awe inspiring galaxies spiralling in the sky at night - the display is out of this world.
