Graskop town stands on the farm Graskop that belonged to Abel Erasmus in the Nineteenth Century. It became an important railway terminus for supplies being sent to the mines at Pilgrim’s Rest as well as a loading point for timber “mine-props” needed by the gold mines on the Witwatersrand.
The climate is invigorating throughout the year with many different seasons sometimes all occurring on the same day. The summers are cool, with warm sunshine days in the winter months.
Graskop is a snug, pretty, bustling tourist town with a mix of various kinds of comfortable accommodation, from where one can visit the magnificent Blyde Canyon, Pinnacle, and Wonderview. Graskop is most conveniently situated enabling the patrons to explore the whole Panorama route and beyond. Check the trips and tours page on www.graskop.co.za
