Table Mountain is a landmark in Cape Town. The top of the mountain is as flat as a table. It seems to be flattened with a knife, so it is also called the dining table of God. On the right side of Table Mountain is Lion's Head Mountain and Signal Hill, and on the left is the Devil's Peak. Every year, a large amount of water vapor rises to the top of the mountain after encountering Table Mountain, and then forms a spectacular cloud under the action of cold air. It is like a whole piece of tablecloth covering the entire Table Mountain, and the scenery is very beautiful.
