Climb to the Top of Skeleton Gorge

This hike starts in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the route up the mountain follows the Skeleton Gorge Ravine through indigenous forest. It is a lot less exposed to the sun on the way up the mountain as the majority of the climb is in the shade of the tree canopies. Once on top of the mountain, the rest of the hike is in the sunshine and is a lot more exposed.
