Whilst Platteklip Gorge involves no height exposure or rock scrambling whatsoever, it is the most direct, and therefore steepest route up Table Mountain demanding a moderate to good level of fitness and endurance.

The risk of outdoors activities, where social distancing is enforced, has been deemed by the WHO as being significantly less than indoor activities. Nonetheless, we place the highest value on our guests’ safety at all times. We walk in small, intimate groups, ensure safe walking distances and promote the use of hand sanitiser and the wearing of masks where necessary.

Path and peak Adventures - Platteklip Gorge
You will be afforded amazing views of the City Bowl, surrounding Oceans and Robben Island.

This is the oldest, quickest and most direct route up Table Mountain. It is ideal if you are short on time and want to conquer Table Mountain as quickly as you can! The route follows a series of rocky steps up a steep gorge until you reach the top, 1087m later. Along the way you will learn a lot from your expert guide on the flora, fauna and history of Table Mountain as well as some interesting anecdotal stories.

Once at the top, there will be the chance to take an extended break and simply absorb all of the amazing surroundings. Having taken any and all desired pictures, you will slowly make your way to the cable car station having ascended one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.
