What is there to see on top of Table
A number of people who have hiked with me have been very surprised at how expansive the top of Table Mountain is and how much there is to see up there. Table Mountain is SO MUCH MORE than a great view from the cable way station.
So, what is there to see on top of Table Mountain?
First of all its important to realise that the area of the cable car is about 1/50th of the space on top of the mountain. Thus the belief that going up in the cable car gives you an idea of the mountain as a whole is wrong. That small area has been paved and made to accommodate the hundreds of tourists visiting it every day. But move a little way away from the cable car and you will be amazed what you will find.
Once away from the cable car you soon escape the crowds and begin to understand why she is one of the new natural wonders of the world. Almost immediately you will begin to appreciate some views of the mountain as a whole. There are 5 reservoirs on the back of the mountain as well as a small museum housing the equipment used to build those reservoirs in the 1800’s.
