Description

The India Venster trail offers sensational views, enhanced by the dramatic setting and striking rock-formations. City views along the first part give way to sea views on the upper section. The route leads up an imposing part of Table Mountain, threading through steep and dramatic terrain that seems unclimbable from below. The India Venster hike involves scrambling and exposure to heights. The route follows a well-defined trail, rocky and mostly uneven, with big rock steps on the steep sections. In addition, it involves scrambling and narrow ledges about 15% of the way. Generally considered a challenging route, it takes an average of 2 h 55 min to complete.
