“Platteklip is a challenging hiking trail that will take you right onto Table Mountain. The oldest, easiest and most direct route to the summit and therefore also the most popular, so expect company along the way. Pack a few snacks and enjoy a picnic once you reach the summit. You will not be disappointed by the views. ”

Trail
“A steep climb, an hour up for the fit and 2 or more for those less so, this is a wonderful trek up to the Table Top. The path is all stepped and busy at peak times. A rewarding way to reach the top of Table Mountain and look over the splendour of Cape Town. At the top, there is a restaurant and bar. If you are tired, take the cable car down.”
