The viewpoint over the Three Roundevals is in my opinion the best in the Panorama route. Note that there are two viewing points here - one trail starts in front of the souvenir shops, while the other starts at the far end of the road - this 2nd one provides much better views over both the roundevals and the lake...

What a story the landmarks tell, very accessible and affordable. What a site, including the stream at the foot of the Roundavels.

had to agree with our pre teens, this site does not seem to even to have a worthwhile visit in the first time, maybe it you have lots of time.

I highly recommend you visiting this canyon. Be careful as there are no railings and the edges are very steep but the view is spectacular.

After viewing the Three Roundavels, I better appreciated the 'roundavel' design of many of the round lodges in South Africa.

We had a misty day but despite this you could appreciate the beauty of the area. Peaceful and quiet - a truly spectacular view.

Loved this viewpoint of the canyon. Just sit and enjoy the quiet and the expanses. We had a clear day - I am told that mist and cloud can make this experience different

Unfortunately not a place to visit in the wheelchair but the photographs I have seen from fellow travellers show the views to be spectacular and well worth a visit.

The landscape is amazing, so beautiful that it seems unreal as if it was an hologram. The lush green valley, the silvery river and those three summits are weird in their roundness, like little huts in the distance. Unmissable.
