Table Mountain

Author: · May 3. 2009 · Cape Town

The first thing you see when you arrive in Cape Town is the Table Mountain. But this sight cannot merely be  one to be watched from a afar, because for the active among us, you can hike up to the top of the mountain. There are several trails from which you can choose.

Depending on if you are a big fan of hiking, you can choose any of the trails on a basis of difficulty. Make sure you are fit, because the climb takes a while, and it might be more fun if you don’t have to stop every ten minutes to have a breather. But no matter how hard the hike up is, it will all be worth it once you are on the top. If you hike up near sunset, you will have a beautiful view of the sun setting over the sea.

This doesn’t mean that you should only hike up at dusk. During the day it is great to hike up the mountain and spend several hours exploring the top of the table or even having a picknic up there!

For the less active  among us, there is a the cable car to take you to the top. The ascent takes about 15 minutes, and you are reworded with a spectacular view of Cape Town on your way.

This is a must see, no matter how limited a time you may have in Cape Town!
