Platteklip Gorge is the oldest and most direct route to the summit of Table Mountain. It along with Lions Head Trail are the most popular trail on Table Mountain. It is not the most scenic route up Table Mountain, but if your goal it to take the shortest route to the top, the Platteklip is for you. Although short, the route involves some steep hill walking and a fair amount of fitness is advised.
Platteklip Gorge is also the recommended descent route during adverse weather conditions when the Cable Car is unable to operate.
Should we find that the Cable Car is closed, we would gladly accompany you down for no additional fee.
The guide fee excludes the ticket cost of the decent via the Cable Car. (R200pp)
