Misty Mountain is a 280 hectare South African Natural Heritage Site situated on the spectacular Long Tom Pass, 31 kilometres from Lydenburg and 24 kilometres from Sabie. Perched at an altitude of 1700 metres above sea level in a malaria-free area, Misty Mountain is uniquely set in the mountainous countryside with majestic views across the escarpment and into the Lowveld. Conveniently located on the “Panorama Route”, Misty Mountain is an ideal launching pad for touring the Mpumalanga Escarpment, which includes God’s Window, The Pinnacle, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Blyde River Canyon. It is also close to the world-renowned Kruger National Park and adjacent private game reserves.
