About Platteklip to Upper Cableway Station Walk

The well-constructed path is steep, zigzagging and with stone steps in sections. Once clearing the gorge, turn right to the Upper Cableway Station. Aim to spend time at the top exploring the network of footpaths and numerous interpretative boards. Don't forget to bring cash for the cableway if you don't intend walking down.

Difficulty: Moderate to tough (depending on weather and fitness)
Distance: 3 km one way
Essential items: Water, sunblock, hat, windproof clothing
