Cape Town

Activity Description

Table Mountain via Kasteelspoort Ravine
Our hike up Table Mountain starts near the Lower Cableway station. Initially gentle, the trail reveals lovely views of Lions Head and Camps Bay. The path veers up Kasteelspoort ravine where mountain fynbos, sheer cliffs & spectacular vistas accompany your ascent. Ruins of the old cable way are visible on this route and the ‘diving board’ is a perfect photo opportunity for those not scared of heights. From the top of the gorge the trail meanders into the Valley of the Red Gods, Ark Valley and Echo Valley before the final push to get onto the Table Mountain plateau.

From there it’s a gentle walk to the Cable Car station with amazing photo opportunities along every step. This hike gives you the best experience of the diverse ecology on Table Mountain. Descent is via the Cable car or Platteklip Gorge.
