Table Mountain Hike

Towering 1086 meters over Cape Town, and around 500 million years old, Table Mountain is a playground for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. The oldest, easiest and most direct route to the summit and therefore also the most popular is via Platteklip Gorge. The hike follows a well-constructed trail up a deep ravine on the iconic front face of the mountain, featuring imposing cliffs in its upper reaches.
