Full description
Walk up Le Morne Brabant mountain, one of Mauritius' most popular attractions and a 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 the entrance of 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. Take a moment to admire the breathtaking panoramic views surrounding you. Next, arrive at the 470-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.

Quite an amazing experience with Kevin who guided us to Mourne Brabant.The way he entertained us throughout the trek with an amazing knack for story telling about the history of the mountain and Mauritius.Also encouraged us to enquire about anything about Mauritius, one of trekking member who was losing the momentum in climbing up due to lack of motivation and scare he tactfully helped her to scale the mountain. This trek became one of highlight of my first ever trip to mauritius

A fantastic morning’s climb with Kevin. It was amazing to meet so early, hear the birds’ dawn chorus and see the colourful sunrise. There is no denying that this expedition is a challenge, both up and down. You need to use both hands for the scrambling section. The sense of achievement and views at the top make it worth all the effort. We were really glad we went so early as we missed the heat of the day for the climbing part and there were very few other people out as early - it got busier as we descended. Kevin looked after the whole party of people with a wide range of ability and fitness. He was knowledgeable, friendly, encouraging and positive throughout. A huge thank you to him for this memory.

Kevin, our very experienced guide, was really wonderful. The sunrise hike to the top of Le Morne is a breathtakingly marvellous experience - albeit a demanding hike. Very moving and disturbing to learn about the tragic history of the large group of slaves who plunged to their deaths from this mountain.
