Do this intimidating hike for breathtaking views. As you hike, cable cars will be swooping right over your head at high speeds every now and then. This route takes you very close to Table Mountain. End with coffee and rest atop this summit. 

DAY 01

INdia Venster hike - cape town

  • Meet your South African guide at the Lower Cable car station at the MyCity bus stop. 

  • After a quick but thorough route and safety briefing, you set off to conquer Table Mountain. Following right below the cable cars, the path is clear- and you will wonder why you chose a guide to tag along.

  • After the contour pat, the route is a little more difficult to find and becomes quite steep. Huff and puff your way through narrow openings and cling to staples in the rock. Your South African guide will tell you all about the beautiful Cape Fauna and Flora - a World Heritage site!

  • After about two hours you will reach the summit of India Venster

  • Once at the top you are free to have lunch at the Eatery (Please excuse your guide to return home if you choose to lunch here).You can share a quick coffee with your guide at the top and head down with the cable car.  Or with a prior arrangement, you can hike down Platteklip Gorge.
