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 the start of the trail for a safety briefing before you head to a lesser known path up the mountain. The first section of the hike will be through luscious rainforest. Make sure to keep an eye out for the phenomenal and rare endemic birds, and plants. Watch the golden sun rise 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 breath-taking panorama 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.

Climbing Le Morne was difficult, however rewarding. It wasn't one of the easiest hikes as there's around 10-15% of the hike that requires good physical conditions, however, when climbing on the top the views are mesmerizing and breathtaking. I totally loved the decision to go for this route. Kevin is a great lead, with lots of interesting pieces of information about Mauritius, history, etc.

It was just great! We started shortly after 4:30 and we were able to enjoy a great view during the hike. The colors and the sunrise - a dream. Kevin is a great guide, who provided us with Nutella crepes upstairs and told us a lot about the flora and fauna. Highly recommended.

Kevin (guide) is the only one offering this sunrise tour and it's just worth getting up early. We ordered a taxi (3:00 am) to be there at 4:30 am. Kevin is very experienced and was able to explain a lot to us not only about climbing but also about the nature and history of Mauritius. During the descent, a lot of people came towards us (about 20), we were alone on the top, had we been later we would hardly have had so many opportunities to enjoy the view in peace! The colors / the light, just amazing !! We will be back
