I have mentioned that the SA border post is halfway up the Sani Pass and the Lesotho border is at the top. This picture was taken about halfway between the two border posts.
At the bottom of the valley runs a rivulet. If you look closely you will see the Sani Pass road (at least parts of it) as it runs next to and following the contours carved by water over many years. Where we are now in the ascent, the road has done some sharp inclines and is not following the course of the mountain stream anymore.
From Underberg (last Friday's picture) to this point is a steady climb of around 1,400 metres. The top of the pass is about four hundred metres higher. A sign at the top indicates 2873 m above sea level.
