Now.....that is well worth the drive, the hike up the mountain and whatever else you will do to get to Mpumalanga.We went on a clear day in the dry season of June 2014. I suggest visitors should try and allow for a full day or day and a half to take in the beauty and whole length and breadth of Blyde River Canyon. You don't want to rush Mpumalanga. Enjoy the rolling mountains and yes..try for good weather.Mpumalanga is about the the scenic drives.The entry fees are ridiculously worth it

“Awesome views...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

What an absolutely amazing and awesome view! If you're spending time in Mpumalanga then take the time to stop over and complete this walk....or should I say hike :) While steep and rather tiring in the sun...the view at the top is definitely worth it. There is a small community run craft market in the parking area (parking cost at ZAR10 - less than 1 USD depending on the exchange rate at the time). For the most part the walk paved and in some areas there are steps....but there are a few places where this is not the case. This walk is overall not that strenuous....my 70 year old mum made it up....granted with loads of stops...but she got there!

“Awesome View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Slight hike uphill but definately worth the view. It might be a bit difficult for the elderly folk. Once you get to the top you will need to catch your breath whole enjoying the stunning view. Try and do this site on a clear day.

“Must stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Wonderful view! We are really glad we stopped. Pretty walk and it's amazing. We were lucky and went on a clear day. When you pull in there is a little place to pay a fee. I believe it was 10 rand. In the parking lot there's many areas for sellers. We bought a few things there.

“Gods Window”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

The walk to the top is definately not for the unfit, however, the view is well worth it at the top. There are plenty of places to rest ,however, good walking shoes are recommended. Its also a good idea to carry some water.
