What to expect:

 

This route is for the more adventurous, brave at heart souls. If you are an experienced hiker and have a taste for risk then this might be the hike for you. The hike follows an interesting route up Table Mountain where there are parts of exposure and scrambling so this hike is not recommended for those with a fear of heights. It is a thrilling experience climbing Table Mountain up this route and not soon to be forgotten. Amazing views of the city, Lions Head and 12 Apostles can be seen on this route.

 

Fitness required:

 

India Venster is similar to Platteklip Gorge albeit not as steep. It demands not only a moderate to good level of fitness but also a good head for heights and being comfortable rock scrambling.
