Possibly the most Googled Hiking Route on Table Mountain, the India Venster hike tackles Table Mountain front (North) face starting from Table Mountain Aerial Cable Station. A 3-4 hour hiking route suitable for any averagely fit person not to afraid of heights - there are some exposed sections mid-height which require elementary rock-scrambling / climbing and is ideal for a guided hike on Table Mountain for this reason.
Not your average hike! The hike is a varied offering of steep, even scrambling sections as well as some winding almost flat sections. India Venster starts up the North Face of Table Mountain and weaves through the rock bands to a point 100m directly below the Upper Cable Station. At this point, the path darts around onto the West face and traverses the length of Fountain Ledge overlooking Camps bay and from there joins the final section of Platteklip Gorge up the last section to the summit.
