QUAKING in YOUR BOOTS in CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA

From below, hiking to the top of Lion’s Head peak looks impossible without ropes and karabiners. Because the two hour-long trail winds circularly up the mountain it is possible, but the going is tough. The narrowest parts of the trail are by the steepest edges, rocks aren’t always steady under your feet, and metal chains must be used. But the 360-degree view truly takes your breath away. From here you can see all of Cape Town, miles of coastline, Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, and the top of Table Mountain and its Twelve Apostles peaks.
