Three Roundavels, Mpumalanga

#5 of 16 in Nature in Mpumalanga
Marvel at a natural geological wonder at Three Roundavels, a chain of three round mountaintops in the Blyde River Canyon. Resembling the traditional, beehive-like homesteads after which they were named, the three peaks tower over the surrounding ravine from 700 m (2,296 ft). An observation deck at 1,380 m (4,528 ft) above sea level offers a great view of the formations. You can drive through the 16 km (10 mi) long canyon, allowing you the flexibility to start or end your journey at the observation deck.
