Prince Albert, Western Cape
Hidden deep within the Gamkaskloof (Die Hel) Nature Reserve, a 4x4 vehicle with high ground clearance is essential to hit this road. A spare wheel is recommended. This beautiful, secluded valley was inaccessible by road until 1962. The work started in March 1960 and was completed in August 1962. Its many streams and fertile soil once supported a community who lived there for more than 100 years in isolation. It is shrouded in romantic notions of mythical communities lost in hidden mountain valleys. Relic farms and several restored cottages remain to stimulate the romance.
