It was chilly but so beautiful. I could have stayed up there a least a whole afternoon... the walk around the perimeter revealed beauty at each stop. We took the cable car up but next time want to hike up to the top. Worth going!

I hiked up the mountain using platteklip gorge an we were up in a hour and 15 min. I'm also not a regular hiker but the route was very easy
