Hiking India Venster

Hiking India Venster is not a straight forward hike and sticking to the path is the best advice. It involves sections of scrambling and climbing up short sections of rock where caution should be exercised.

The route start behind the lower cableway station heading right up Table Mountain. The path weaves in and around ravine and buttress with spectacular views all along!

Table Mountain cableway

At the beginning of the twentieth century, plans for a railway up the front of Table Mountain and a funicular up Platteklip Gorge were bandied about but nothing was ever decided.

The cableway was eventually opened on 4 October 1929. In 1958 the original cable cars were changed for "modern" ones, then in 1967 and again in 1974 and able to carry up to 28 passengers at a time. Today's new cars carry up to 65 passengers and take less than 3 minutes from base to summit. The Aerial Cableway Company is responsible for putting thousands of people on top of Table Mountain every year, which makes it statistically one of the top tourist destination in Africa.
