We went here early in the morning, and it was quite a treat. It has great views towards the Three Rondavels as well as stunning views down the Blyde River canyon. Locals were there already to exhibit their awesome hand-carved wooden artworks...

Less busy than God's Window. The traditional market is being rebuilt to a more formal structure and hopefully the second stage will be public toilet refurbishment.

I really enjoyed our visit. Entrance was R30 per person. The view is stunning- great for photos. There is a bathroom, and some locals selling curios. We spent about 15-20 minutes here.

Most impressive is the meander the Blyde river makes at this point. The three rondavels look like as if they were traditional huts, placed on the ridge of the canyon plateau.

Isn't nature amazing though? Just when we thought we'd seen it all in Blyde River area, here we are. It is quite noticeable from afar, so no need to drive up close to it. It is actually more interesting as a group of mountains.
