The viewers took the cableway to the top of Table Mountain. Each Cable car can hold up to 65 people. Table Mountain is a sandstone plateau rising up above the Cape Flats. The top is approximately three kilometers wide, and at its highest point, Maclears Beacon, it rises to 1085 meters. Even the locals are awed time and again by the 360º view of Cape Town from the cable car. The cable car was first opened in 1929 and today conveys some 600,000 people to the summit every year.
