This pass is quite an easy one to do.. We approached it from the Sani Border post and the climb up to contour level from  here is the most strenuous part.  Its makes a nice round trip as you can go up with a day pack, spend the night at the lodge and then return down Sani Pass which is what we did on this hike.

 

Approaching the pass - our route takes us up between the two rocky outcrops that are in the sunlight

The rocky gully would be tricky if full of snow
