  • This point surprised us with its beauty. As you approach from the bus stop through the trees, the view of the canyon opens up before you. Definitely worth a trip on the red route to see this one.  more »

  • This is a great place to be at sunset with fantastic colours on the gorge faces when looking east. We were very lucky with light rain falling at times, giving us rainbows coming out of the bottom of the gorge, at times. Note that once the sun goes down have a jacket handy as it gats cold. You can travel up to the point on the shuttle busses provided but make sure you know the time of the last shuttle as it would be a fairly long walk back in the dark especially on a moonless night.
  • Great place to watch sunset ... but bring a torch for the walk back: the sun goes down quickly.
