A must do when you are in Montagu. The fresh mountain air and spectacular views are worth it. Irene's potjiekos is divine. Jaco and team, keep it up.

...and what a journey up an over the mountain....breathtaking views, thrills up and down...lovely people and a lovely Potjiekos at the end. An enjoyable experience I would recommend any and all(excluding persons with a fear of heights) to have, but be warned, dress warmly.
