One of the most scenic hikes on
If you are looking for a day hike on Table Mountain which is not too long and includes most of the spectacular and famous views. Then this is the hike for you. You can even take the cable car up and down the mountain if you want to to take it really easy.
We begin at the top of Platteklip Gorge. So you can either walk up the gorge. (steep but spectacular) or take the cable car and stroll from there. From the top of the gorge you go pretty much straight ahead. The path is easy to miss but is marked Echo Valley. (Don’t take the path signed India Venster which is found about 10m away.)
