DescriptionQuick route description India Venster has a small section (b grade) scramble, nothing too hard for anyone to handle with a good head for heights. starting at the lower cable station we'll use a pathway following up under the cables to the contour path. after a short piece on the contour path, we'll head up a series of low rock steps to a platform. next, the route follows up the gully running right to Venster buttress. Here we have the perfect photo opportunity of the actual Venster (window) looking over India ravine. shortly after the window we'll reach the easy scramble sections which our well-trained guides can coach you through if extra encouragement is needed. We will end the route by following around from fountain ledge to the back of table mountain from where we will reach the top. Difficulty: Moderate India Venster Hike Duration: 3.5 - 4 hours Hike Distance: About 3 km / 1.9 miles Elevation Gain: 700 meters / 2300 feet What to bring with Well supportive closed-toe walking shoes with good grip are a must. Cape town does experience very hot days in the summer and a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and water will be needed. a long sleeve button-up shirt with a collar provides great sun coverage. The weather on table mountain can change in an instant so a light mid-layer and a rain jacket will ensure that you stay dry and warm if we find ourselves in between the clouds. Hiking will make you peckish so bringing a snack for the way up is always a good idea Lastly, you'll need a sense of adventure and a willingness to have fun which is all hiking is about really.
