Full description

Walk up Le Morne Brabant mountain, one of Mauritius' most popular attractions and UNESCO world heritage site led by a certified climber as your guide on this small-group tour. Meet your guide at Le Morne Kitesurfing Beach for a safety briefing before you head to a lesser-known path up the mountain. The first section of the hike will be through the luscious rainforest. Make sure to keep an eye out for the phenomenal and rare endemic birds, and plants. Watch the golden sunrise and listen to the birds chirp as you climb up the mountain's four rock-scrambling sections. Along the way, your guide will tell you historical stories about Mauritius' past, and the significance of this important mountain. Pause at the famous Trochetia Boutoniona viewpoint, named after the island's national flower, for some healthy snacks and a breather. Take a moment to admire the breathtaking panoramic views surrounding you. Next, arrive at the 480-meter-high summit and try not to let your jaw drop too low as you see the intense beauty and nature Mauritius is so famous for. Snap a few well-deserved photos before heading back down the mountain.

For the first time we used getyourguide, and they sent us Kevin, a mountaineer expert. He is a very good guy. He taught us a lot about the country's history, and about the plants around the mountain (practically all kind of them). When we almost gave up climbing to the summit, he kept us motivated and kept us moving, and like 20mins later, we managed to reach the top. We recommend him to the socail media fans as well, coz he is recorded every important moment of the day (@horazis). He also surprised us with his tasty pancakes (filled with nutella). He seemed very expert of guiding people around Mauritius, so in the same night we bought 2 tickets to do another hike with Kevin. Thanks mate, it was an awesome experience.

The hike was a great experience. Kevin did a very good job. However, I would only recommend the tour to "fit" people, as the last part is already a great challenge. If it rains, I would advise against it, unless you can really move safely on the via ferrata. The term “sunrise tour” is a bit misleading, because you start hiking in the dark, but you are not on the summit at sunrise. But the view from above makes up for it!

This was our first time hiking up a large mountain and Kevin was a great guide! Would highly recommend this tour with Kevin if you’re visit Le Morne. We started our trek up the mountain really early in the morning and the time was perfect, as we started to make our descent there were lots more people making their way up and by this point it already started to get quite warm. So would definitely recommend doing this hike at sunrise! Thank you Kevin for a great morning!
