    One of the best hikes or walks in the world, and I've been around some! For crowd avoidance and amazing peace park at the shrine and walk from there. Unmissable!

    Must do if you are visiting Cape Town. Fairly easy hike (1-1.5 hours) and amazing views from the top.

    Climb for the sunset! Most beautiful view. Make sure you have friends and flashlights for the dark climb down:)

    A peaceful and majestic place to go. The hike up Lions head took roughly 45 minutes from top to bottom. Enjoy the hike, take in the gorgeous views and definitely try catching a sunset on the top.

    Be weary of going up Lions Head for the full moon if you like to hike quickly. There are often a lot more people hiking than you would expect. This does make it quite festive though.

    Can get pretty busy on weekends and around sunset. Perfect time is before sunrise.

    Mike Eloff · November 19, 2012

    Great start of a day. Pack fruit and juice for a snack on top. · October 7, 2012

    If you have the energy it is well worth the hike to the top. Good self challenge.

    Take coffee and watch sunset. Amazing Read more

    Go up an hour before sunset and take some snacks and a bottle of Backsberg tread lightly. See the sun set over the ocean and turn 180 and see the lights go on in town. Priceless. Take a small torch. · February 16, 2011

    A must do for any tourist or local that needs to be humbled!

    Take a hike up here on clear full moon nights. Get to the top before the sun sets. Bring some snacks.
