As we experienced bad weather conditions during our trip and did not expect much to see much, but was lucky to at least see the Pinnacle - what an amazing piece of nature!

Just off the road this site will surprise you. With standing rock just sitting in the center of a canyon with no access to it.

The Pinnacle was our last stop, and it was probably the least remarkable of all the stops along the Panorama Route.

Natural buttress land structure along the Panorama Route
Oct 2019
The Pinnacle Rock is one of the natural attractions situated along the Panorama Route in the Mpumalanga Highlands of South Africa. It is located on the R534 turnoff just north of Graskop. This is the same road you will take to the popular God's Window stop just a few minutes drive from here.

Opening hours are presently stated as 7am to 5pm daily and entry fee is now R17 per person (Sept 2019). There is parking for perhaps 25-30 vehicles, decent toilet facilities and covered curios stalls if you fancy a bit of local souvenir shopping.

From the carpark, it is a 2-3 minute walk to the first viewing point overlooking the Pinnacle Rock, which is a quartzite buttress that rises around 30 meters from surrounding canyon floor. Millions of years of land erosion on its sides created this natural rock tower. It is unique in appearance and attractive within the green forested canyon.

There are a couple more viewpoints you can walk to around 80 metres away that make for good views of the Pinnacle Rock and landscape as well. Do have a look out for birds and monkeys in the indigenous forest within the canyon walls below if interested.

Note: The Pinnacle Rock is a good first stop if you are beginning your Panorama Route drive from Graskop. It can be comfortably done in 10-15 minutes before moving on to see God's Window and other stops you intend to make.

Note: We visited The Pinnacle Rock on a clear afternoon in September when visibility was very good. This made for much nicer views of the landscape compared to our June 2012 visit when the skies were very hazy.

Very beautiful
Oct 2019 • Friends
It is a peculiar rock that actually remembers the movie 'Avatar'. If the day is sunny, the landscape is incredibly beautiful.
