A relatively short hike up to the peak. Should take about an hour to go up for a person of average fitness.
Some of the best views in Cape Town. The views are also 360degree views! The hike up also has 'the chains' which is basically for the slightly more adventurous - it's rock climbing on a smaller scale. Highly recommended.
Try to go near full moon for the moonlight hike. Start just before the sun set, watch the moon come up, and hike down in the moonlight. Avoid the day of full moon as it gets very crowded.
Take some water and sandwiches as there are no shops up on top!
