Platteklip Hike


Platteklip Gorge is the shortest route straight up to the summit. Probably the most popular route as it is clearly visible and the path follows underneath the cable car. Straight up makes Platteklip Gorge one of the most strenuous routes to the summit with a climb from 350m above sea level at the bottom station of the cable car to 1020m above sea level when you reach the top. The beauty of nature that you will experience and the wide angle views will make every step worth your while.
