The word Graskop means “Grassy Peak”, Graskop is situated on the top of the escarpment of the Drakensberg Mountains in the Mpumalanga Province, South Africa. Graskop was originally the farm of Abel Erasmus, a prominent inhabitant of the Graskop and Ohrigstad areas in the 1850’s. Today Graskop is the centre of tourism and forestry in the Mpumalanga Province, and the Blyde River Canyon area. The town is a sleepy hollow, which has attracted many pensioners and artists alike, It is worth a visit for its many curio stores and restaurants.
