Kasteelspoort Hike | Valley Of The Red Gods

Kasteelspoort Hike | Valley Of The Red Gods

Traditionally known as Kasteelspoort, the hike starts off on Camps Bay side and heads up towards Table Mountain. The hike has a gradual gradient heading up, the trade-off is that the hike can take a long time as a large distance is covered. It is totally worth it, as the views are magical and there is a little hidden spot that I want to share with you at the top.

No real steep sections are passed so perfect for the family.

If you are up for it and fit we can add an hour detour to show off the old cable car.
