Blyderiver dam, Blyde river canyon, Mpumalanga province

The Blyde River dam is in the Blyde River Canyon, which is 26 kilometers long and is, on average, around 800 meters deep.

The Dam itself, when full, is at an altitude of 665 meters.

Blyde River canyon is one of the largest canyons on earth, unquestionably being the largest 'green canyon' due to its lush subtropical foliage, and it has some of the deepest precipitious cliffs of any canyon on the planet.
