Hattingshoogte Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.965m (6,446ft) above the sea level, located in KwaZulu-Natal, in South Africa.
The road to the summit is gravel and pretty scenic. 4wd vehicles recommended. The road over the pass is pretty steep, with sections up to 1:11. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. It snows here in winter, in which case this pass would best be avoided unless in a suitable 4x4 with the appropriate equipment to deal with snow. This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. The pass is also subject to violent electrical storms and even tornadoes on the odd occasion. This route should not be attempted by inexperienced off-road drivers or in a single vehicle.
