It's awesome to hike and climb up to this marvel of nature.
It's also a death trap for tourists.
People take the cable car up and think it's ok to venture on down in flip-flops, or they commence a hike up through a ravine, without taking any water. The weather can change at very short notice. Table mountain is thus like any mountain: Absolutely beautiful, but it will kill you if you are stupid - or unlucky.
We were kinda mindful and thus survived. On our way up, we picked up to hikers, which started without a map or proper water. Good thing they met two Germans.
