A fun route up the face of Table Mountain underneath the cable car. Classified as a scramble the India Venster route includes a little bit of easy climbing. No experience is necessary but you do need a sense of adventure. Wonderful views and an experience you will not forget. Take the cable car down.
Can also be extended to include a hike to Maclears Beacon which is the highest point on the mountain.
Level of difficulty: Some fun scrambling.
Lions Head, the sugarloaf peak alongside the main Table Mountain offers some of the best views in the Cape. A short steep ascent with magnificent 360 degree views from the top. There are 2 routes possible. One following an exciting scrambling route with the assistance of chains. The other avoids the chains and is a less exciting but still a steep route.
Lions head is a great sunrise hike.
