Us-Hoogte Pass is pure adventure in Namibia

Us-Hoogte Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.878m (6,161ft) above the sea level, located in the Khomas region of Namibia. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

Us-Hoogte Pass

Tucked away in the central part of the country, on the outskirts of the Namib Desert, the road to the summit, also known as Us-Pass, is totally unpaved. It’s called D1982. The road is steep, hitting a 1:10 of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
The road is 201km (124 miles) long, running east-west from C26 road, south of Windhoek, to C14 road. Corrugated sections are quite common. The road winds through several dry river courses which are sometimes impassable to sedan cars after heavy rains. It’s well worth a drive if you want to get dust on your car.
