Van Zyl’s Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 958m (3,143ft) above the sea level, located in the Kunene region of Namibia. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
Located along Namibia’s hauntingly barren Skeleton Coast in the country’s north west, the Skeleton Coast Road (C34) is one of the most stunning drives in the world. The sense of being very close to the end of the world is overpowering. The road is made of compressed salt and can get slippery from the morning dew that rolls in from the coast.
