The breathtaking Swartberg Pass. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this unpaved mountain pass climbs just shy of a mile high through lichen-covered cliffs; its craggy surrounds are perfect for epic hiking and mountain-biking expeditions. Close to the Swartberg pass is the town of Prince Albert, a serious contender for South Africa's most charming town in the karoo region. #Swartbergpass #PrinceAlbert #Karoo #UNESCO #heritagesite #mountainbiking #mountainpass
