The initial hike follows an undulating path that is designed to warm up your muscles and elevate your heart-rate before the scrambling and climbing sections begin. At 340 meters above sea level, you will have a safety and mountain security briefing prior to the first of the four scrambling and climbing sections. There is a 70-meter, 25-meter, 15-meter, and 10-meter section. They provide the most spectacular views of the lush mountain ranges of Chamarel as well as stunningly beautiful lagoon views of both the North-Western and South-Eastern coasts that extend in front of you to the horizon. Various rest points provide a unique opportunity for the team to take memorable photographs of you and your family so that the once-in-a-lifetime experience can never be forgotten. Arrive at the summit of the V with a just reward for all of your efforts and hard work as the views are well worth it. The team will provide you with additional information, whilst taking photographs and allowing you the opportunity to have a break and appreciate the location and its amazing surroundings.

Une randonnée exceptionnelle avec pour finalité une vue incroyable , je recommande à 1000% cette activité. Un incontournable sur Maurice et on a la chance d’être les premiers donc pas beaucoup de personnes, grâce à notre super guide. Justement notre guide James Bryn a était parfait, rien à dire vraiment puis a la fin il nous a concocté une petite vidéo de 4 minutes de l’ensemble de l’activité. Juste nickel un vrai pro et une super rencontre! Merci pour cette expérience

Overall a great and exciting experience! Very professional and the instructor made everyone feel safe during the climb. If you are considering going on this guided climb I definitely recommend getting Bryn as your guide - he made sure everyone felt safe and made useful instructions on how to climb some of the tricky parts of the mountain. Besides that he made sure to take amazing photos and videos of everyone! Definitely a 10/10 experience from us.

Very easy and straightforward process when organising our hike with Bryn. Great communication telling us the meeting point and start time for the hike (there was some confusion with the details provided in the email) Great guide and looked after everyone in our group. I would definitely recommend Bryn if anyone was looking for a guide for hiking Le Morne Brabant!

Dieser Ausflug war jeden Cent wert! Bryn war mega emphatisch nett und hilfsbereit er hat uns ermutigt und hat vor Energie nur so gesprüht. Wir können jedem empfehlen diese Tour zu machen und sind dankbar für diese einmalige Erfahrung. Danke Bryn! ♥️

Byrn is the perfect guide; experienced and professional, he designs THE experience for the participants.
