Hiking Le Morne Mountain
OVERVIEW: HIKING LE MORNE MOUNTAIN
Hiking at Le Morne: The Morne Brabant is a mountain of the south-west of Mauritius, on the peninsula of the Morne. Our hiking partner has been guiding guests from all over the planet on this majestic rock for the past twelve years.
Declared World Heritage by UNESCO since July 6, 2008, the site is a sanctuary of the runaway slaves who would have committed suicide by jumping off the cliff of the mountain.
Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It is habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutonania, which is our floral emblem !
The hike to the summit of Morne Brabant lasts between three and four hours, depending on the pace and homogeneity of the group. Once on top, we discover the breath-taking views towards the west and south-west lagoons and part of of the island !
