The Table Mountain is a flat topped mountain located in Cape Town, South Africa. The Table Mountain features a level plateau measuring three kilometers from side to side and edged by impressive cliffs. This Mountain forms the dramatic backdrop which adds to the beauty of Cape Town, thereby making it a significant tourist attraction in South Africa that offers hiking, camping amongst other activities.
A so-called “table cloth” of cloud is formed where the moisture condenses from the south-eastern wind which is directed up the mountain slopes into colder air and also contributes to the lush plateau vegetation. The Tablecloth symbolizes a smoking contest between the Devil and a local pirate called Van Hunks.
There are over 350 classified routes which includes a Cableway which was built in 1929 that leads to the top.

This tabular shaped looking mountain is one of Cape town’s most recognized landmarks and one of the epic mountain ranges you should visit in South Africa.
