Guided Hike - Platteklip Gorge


| /

Affectionately called Adderley Street, Platteklip is technically easy - but be warned, it is steeper than it looks

  • Grade: A (on trail)
  • Duration: 3-4 hours

Guided Hiking on the oldest, easiest hike on Table Mountain. The route follows the centre cleft of Table Mountain North face ascending a steep but well maintained foot path and crests the table-top midway between the cable car and McClears Beacon - the highest point on Table Mountain.

We have daily hikes leaving shortly after sunrise (or late afternoon) to avoid the sun-baked slopes which catch the sun an hour or two after sunrise due to their Northern aspect. We aim to be deep in the gully and still in shadow. If the cable car is running, we take the 5min ride down, however it is important to be prepared to walk back down in the even that the car is closed due to strong winds.
