Beautiful Ascent up table Mountain, one of the best of all the crisscrossing trails to the top.

Did the India Venster trail with rock climbing,...would highly recommend! Not too difficult and very few other climbers. Great hike.

amazing hike up the back of Table Mountain, be careful, we saw a Cape cobra there

Steep and rocky but views are amazing! Wear good hiking shoes as rocks can be slippery if wet.

Beautiful route.
The climbing makes it tough, but it’s worth it for the views/nature.

This hike was hard but so much worth it. Had to do scrabbling lots of times and some areas were expose but the views made it all worth it. Had 2 ladders to climb up to get all the way to the cable cars but were ok for me since not as expose. Also had the trail for myself most of the way since only saw 5 hikers and 3 rangers the 5 hrs I was in the trial. Need to know your way around because most part not identify and can get confusing in the section where it is all rock climbing, so go with a guide ( I did) if not familiarize with it. The guide can also take your pics!!

Took me and two friends just about two hours to reach the top! It was a lovely hike. A few wet areas with flowing water we had to cross but I think that is a result of the rain the last couple days rather than the norm.

Great hike although pretty hard.

Climbed again Monday 4/30/2018 at 10:00 AM with wife, daughters and 4 friends from Cape Town. Took a little over 2 hours! Perfect day! Unbelievable views! Hard but worth every bit of effort.

Beautiful,isolated and challenging. All the important factors for a good hike

Best outdoor app

Not technically very difficult, just a long and steep climb. It took about 3 hours to complete with frequent breaks. We took the cable car back down. Definitely recommend this hike, it has a beautiful view.

Beautiful view, paved route throughout.

Short walk to the falls suitable for families and includes a swimming hole. Steeper paved walk to the lookout with stunning views. Located in Royal Natal Park. Many other trails for all experience levels available.

Hectic and really hard but well worth it

Hike this one in the spring and you'll be rewarded with streams and wildflowers. The views at the top are incredible.

Awesome trail! Beware...if you follow this route turn by turn, there is a ton of rock climbing up some slippery paths. Be sure to wear waterproof shoes, as there are some soggy spots. We took the cable car down the other side. Overall pretty demanding trail but the views are worth it!

Take the time to hike along the reservoirs as well !

For those with poor athletics conditioning it would be very hard. The path is very uneven recommend to use a tracking shoes instead of a running one. Take at least 1 l of water per person.

I believe there were several routes to the top...we took the most direct. Was basically an hour and 1/2 scramble. Really an awesome little hike.
