India Venster Hike


India Venster is one of the most beautiful and exciting hiking routes up Table Mountain and offers the most spectacular views of the Atlantic seaboard. The trail gets its name from the shape of the ravine situated between two large rock walls, shaped like the Indian subcontinent. The hike zig-zags under the cableway for most of the way and starts off relatively easy following a fair amount of scrambling and climbing, and exposure to heights. If you are looking for a really fun route up Table Mountain that is off the beaten track and are not afraid of heights, then the India Venster route is the one for you.
