Ek verlang vanaand ernstig terug na my 1150 op hierdie pragtige pas in Lesotho...

Hy le op die A4 roete tussen Thaba-Tseka en Qacha's Nek grenspos. Ooste van Lesotho. As jy van Katse af ry en mik vir die volgende grenspos suid van Sani sal jy oor Matabeng pas ry.

Ek het Sani en Matabeng gedoen twee dae na mekaar en kan eerlik se Matabeng vat die koek met al sy lekker water-crossings. hoogste punt is net so oor die 2960 mamsl.

Looking back over this pass.
Took my son on his XR250 Tornado, his first long trip, total over 2300km (Sun City, Fouriesburg, Mokhotlong, Matebeng Pass, Ramatsiliso's Gate, Matatiele, Naude's Nek, Rhodes, Lundean's Nek, Tele Bridge Border into Lesotho again, Malealea, Roma, Thaba Tseka, Katse, Buthe Buthe, Fouriesburg and back home)
Second pic of one of his three falls, this one just after exiting Ramatsiliso's border gate...luckily did not continue down the side of the mountain!
