The small town of Graskop is the gateway to the Panorama Route. It's a good place to set up base. Scenic landmarks with evocative names like God's Window, Wonder View, the Pinnacle, Bourke's Luck Potholes and the Three Rondawels beckons you. The awe-inspiring Lisbon Falls, Berlin Falls and Mac Mac Falls are also just a short drive away, and adding some historical romance into the mix, half an hour's drive from Graskop, the gold-rush town of Pilgrim's Rest gives you the chance to relive the 1873 gold-rush in surroundings of unparalleled beauty. You can even try your hand at panning for gold.
From Graskop, head on to the Blyde River Canyon Reserve. Thread your way along the cliff tops, 800 meters above the Blyde River Canyon, and at God's Window, be sure to walk in the thick, indigenous forest that's often among the clouds.
The Bourke's Luck Potholes are also well worth a visit. These giant potholes have formed at the confluence of the Blyde and Treur rivers and mark the beginning of the Blyde River Canyon.
