India Venster to Kasteelspoort – 03 Oct (Advanced/Strenuous)

(2 customer reviews)


A challenge for those who enjoy longer, more strenuous hikes. The route follows India Venster up, a hike through Echo Valley on top of Table Mountain and down Kasteelspoort. We will return via the pipe track to our starting point.  The route explores multiple terrains and promises an abundance of views, flora and fauna.


India Venster has a lot of uphill climbing, some technical scrambles and areas with exposure, so if you are looking for an adrenaline filled adventure, this hike is for you! Echo Valley boasts beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, some wooden walkways, a few ladders and incredible fynbos to boot! On our descent, we’ll make a stop at the diving board for a break before following Kasteelspoort down to the pipetrack.


Most people travel half way around the world to do this type of tour in Cape Town. It’s definitely a bucket list adventure.


Here’s an idea of the potential experience👇


NB. It’s COMPULSORY that you either have steep terrain hiking experience or that you are relatively active. If really terrified of heights, this is probably not for you. But if you’re adventurous and like a bit of a challenge, you can only enjoy it. Don’t believe everything you read online about the route…You’re welcome to enquire from us if you’re unsure.

    This hike truly lived up to the description it had a bit of everything . Was expertly led by Yvette the Trailfit guide who as always was the consummate professional, always caring, kind and encouraging .

    Definitely one for the bucket list! A unique and interesting route up Table Mountain manoeuvring under the cable car on the ascent. The route offers fantastic views and challenges the mind with some scrambling sections too. Do not be put off by these as your expert guide will help you through them. So rewarding reaching the top of the mountain via one of the lesser travelled paths
