The scenic Panorama Route, with various viewpoints, runs along the top of a section of the escarpment between the Mpumalanga Highveld and Lowveld. It offers incredible views, we strongly recommend it. The Route may be approached from Ohrigstad or from the logging town of Graskop.
The Lowveld was previously known as the Eastern Transvaal Lowveld. Following the end of Apartheid in 1994 the province's name was changed to Mpumalanga and the area is simply called The Lowveld. The Lowveld section of the province is part of the coastal plane and is more or less 200m above sea-level.
