Often referred to as the gateway to heaven, Barrydale is situated on the world famous Route 62. This quaint village is a mere two-and-a-half hour drive from Cape Town International Airport and, quite uniquely, boasts the features associated with the nearby wine district while also providing guests with the tranquility that can only be found in the Karoo.
A master-piece created by Thomas Bain which was completed in 1873, the Tradouw Pass (which means Womens Path in the old Khoi language) is a 16 kilometer drive through an altitude range of 219 meters through some of the most beautiful and rugged mountain scenery on offer in the Langeberg. It has been rated as one of the top 20 mountain passes in the Western Cape.
