Bosua Pass

Bosua Pass, a steep (20%) high mountain road in Namibia

Bosua Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.728m (5,669ft) above the sea level, located in central Namibia. The pass is traversed by the C28 road.

The road to the summit, also known as Boshua Pass, is one of the Namibia's steepest routes, reaching a gradient of 1:5 or 20% slope as it descends onto the Namib plains. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
The road is gravel and is not suitable for trailers or caravans. There are some very steep sections as you drive over the mountain and as such you should not try to do it with a car that does not have decent tires and brakes.
