Bushman's Pass

Bushman's Pass: 65 bends to the summit

Bushman's Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.266m (7,434ft) above the sea level, located in the central highlands of western Lesotho.

The road to the summit, also known as Lekhalong-la-Baroa, Bushmans Pass or Bushmen's Pass, is paved and pretty curvy. It’s called A3 Road and runs between Likalaneng and Nazareth. The climb is pretty steep, with sections at 1:5. The pass has 65 bends, corners and curves.

The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. The summit receives regular snowfalls. During very cold conditions ice might be present on the roadway, which is extremely dangerous.
