Touch down Capetown and you just cannot miss Table Mountain, the backdrop, Africa’s New Natural World Wonder. The sight is awe inspiring and you can hardly miss a view of this majestic sight at every nook and cranny of the city. It is almost like a shadow which looms in the background and the very the possibility of you out running it is extremely slim.

It was two days to my leaving South Africa and I had not hiked Table mountain. The weather had not been the best for a couple of days hence I could not hike. Seeing that hiking was barely feasible, and I sure was not about leaving without getting on top there. I decided to go via the Cable car.
It was really cold up there, there were a lot of people, it was quite cloudy and there sure was no view whatsoever. Just an endless void. Going up in the afternoon would sure have been a better sight.
I was going to do my mountain jump and get a higher altitude but I was freaking scared as it sure looked like I was going to drop down 3,558 ft.
However Gaelen, my Couch Surfing Local was there to give me a helping hand.
Sometimes friends can really be useful to get you to that altitude you desire. However if I am ever in Capetown again, I’d totally love to Hike up Table Mountain and Abseil down. Cheers Guys!
