HikingGreat!No shade

Definitely one of my favorite hikes with unbelievable hikes at the top of the climb. However, should certainly be listed as difficult instead of moderate. The second half of the hike is a straight up climb and definitely takes some athleticism to complete. One piece of warning is do not complete the second half if it is wet. It began raining as we were climbing, and while we got up alright, it was pretty sketchy getting down without proper footing, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, enjoy it!!! So much fun

This is not for the faint hearted. Up to the first viewing point it is quite steady and the heat really takes it out of you. Be sure to take plenty of water with you and set off early. After the viewing point their is a sign that states the climb is difficult. and it is EXTREMELY difficult and a near vertical climb. i started the climb at approx 12 noon and regretted the time i set off, as the sun was blazing and the rocks where piping hot to touch when climbing directly in the sun, with no shade. a part from one tree half way up. I was dying with no water and luckily a tour guide was sat under the tree and gave me a bottle of water. i persevered with the climb and it was well worth it. the views at the top are heaven on earth and it is such an accomplishment because it is not easy. it was the hardest and most challenging mountain i have ever climbed yet in the heat. i recommend you start early!

This was an epic hike! Once the trail says it is dangerous it turns from a moderate hike to a straight up scramble. If you are comfortable doing the scramble it is worth it but very sketchy!

If you’re looking to get to the cross, bring 2 bottles of water per person at least—gets very hot when sun is out. Do not bring a lot of things. You’ll be climbing on all fours in some places. There are cliffs nearby. Going down is surprisingly easy (being careful). Great reward at the end! Don’t bring grandma to the top, but a good challenge if you’re moderately in shape.

First off, this is NOT a “moderate” hike. The lower half, maybe, but the upper portion includes a very steep and rocky climb. The scenery and the views are incredible. There are plenty of beautiful trees and flowers to keep the hike interesting in the forested section.

The bottom portion of the trail is wide, well-marked and gently to moderately sloping. After a rest area with benches, you come to a trail that is much narrower and steeper. The top portion of this is scrambling. We occasionally passed other parties but overall it was not crowded. There were also several groups traveling with a guide, which seems quite unnecessary. The trail ends at a large cross, where you get a nice view in three directions. The trail was dry when we did it and I probably would not have attempted it if it were muddy. Overall this was a relatively easy and fun hike. It took us around 3 hours.

First to Review

This famous mount is a World Heritage site due to its role in Mauritian history as a slave refuge. It has magnificent views of the surrounding lagoons on the south and west and the inland mountains to the north and east. It’s an approximately 4 mile round trip with a brisk but manageable climb for the first half following by a demanding climb to the summit. This is not for the inexperienced hiker as it’s closer to three point climbing/bouldering for the summit climb. A guide is helpful but not necessary.
