The stunning formation, consisting mainly of red sandstone, is one of the largest canyons in the world and as such is one of the palnet’s natural wonders. The Canyon has numerous gorges and natural cliffs formed by precipitation, some of which are exceptionally deep.
The most well known zone of the Canyon is the three huge rocks known as the Three Rondavels. The grounds and area around the canyon blooms during the monsoon, thanks to the flow of the Panoram River. Another primary attraction of the canyon is its bearing of the world’s second tallest waterfall of tufa type, the Kadishi Tufa Waterfall. The canyon also has the famous dam of Blyderivierpoort.
