More about India Venster Hiking Route

The hike starts at the lower cable car station and begins with a sharp ascent for the first 30 minutes. Things become more forgiving as the trail winds its way along single track and over small boulders, up the mountain.

Soon India Venster hikers will come across the famous ‘Window’ (Venster in Afrikaans); an iconic picture opportunity with a massive boulder hanging threateningly above your head. Two thirds of the way up the mountain, hikers will be met by the famous ‘staples & chains’; this is a short series of climbing aids that will assist you in ascending some steep rock faces. This is not climbing but requires a good head for heights.

The route then curves around the side of Table Mountain and opens up beautifully to views of the 12 Apostles and Camps Bay. It is then a relatively short and flat walk to top out on Table Mountain’s summit. Once on the summit, there will be the chance to take an extended break at a semi-secret location and simply absorb all of the amazing surroundings. Having taken any and all desired pictures, you will slowly make your way to the cable car station having ascended one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

Transport is complementary to the first 4 pax booked (subject to availability).
