As the name suggests, Holkrans (Afrikaans for “Hollow Cliff”) is a huge cavern in the vast (~50m high) cliff face. The 2.4 km circular route starts and ends at the Golden Gate Hotel and should take an hour to complete. Once you reach the Holkraans Cavern you have to make your way up the sandstone mountain-side using a wooden ladder. This is the most physically difficult section of what is mainly a easy walk along a clear pathway.
This route offers some of the clearest views of the sandstone cliffs because, unlike the other short walks; it is predominantly without any dense bushes or shrubs flanking the pathway. Near the finish of the route, the path rounds a corner and offers a wonderful view of the cliffs of Brandwag Buttress.
