Overview


The Tablemountain, 1.087m is one of the most impressive and charateristic landmarks in the world. The flat-shaped mountain is flanked by the Devils Peak, 1.002m and the Lion´s Head, 669 m.
The Lion´s Head is the lowest in this triology, but anyhow this triangle shaped mountain is a very spectacular viewpoint offering a marvellous view over the city of Capetown, Sea Point, Robben Island, Devils Peak and last but not least the entire Table Mountain massive.
The Lion´s Head is not connected with any cablecars as the Table Mountain but nervertheless has a big numbers of visitors all around the year thanks to it´s easy acsess.

Getting There


Follow the road towards Signal Hill. From there several small paths are leading up against the slopes of the Lion´s Head. At the foot of the mountain the small path continous around in a circle, some fix ropes are set up to secure exposed parts.
Up on the top there is a big signal people like to “climb”.
Enjoy the marvellous view which combines the Table Mountain chain, a fantastic flora and fauna and the spectacular sight of two oceans meeting!

The actual height of Lion's Head is 669m, but the heights you gave for Table Mountain and Devil's Peak are correct.





Thanks for the posting





Cheers
