Full description
A 4WD vehicle will take you from the designated meeting point through a private estate in which RESA deer, wild pigs, and numerous bird species including pheasant, quail, and guinea-foul reside. Begin the hike and traverse along the North-Western base of the mountain, allowing for two panoramic perspectives of the mountain to be appreciated of the North Western and South Eastern flanks. 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. The descent down the mountain will begin under the watchful eye of the highly experienced and professional team. Return to the meeting point and then depart to your accommodation.

I am not the most athletic person but our guide Bryn motivated us to climb and get to the top and back safely. He was so much fun and very professional. He took great photos and videos of us and shared them later. He made us feel safe and told stories about how even very old people have got to the top. The early morning start is a huge plus cause coming down from the mountain around 8-9AM, I felt very sorry for the people going up without a guide at this heat (on the mountain it was already over 30 degrees celsius because of the volcanic rock). So if you are thinking if you should go by yourself or with a guide, you should definitely get a guide and if you are thinking which guide to choose then Bryn is your guy!

Great experience! Professionally organized and Bryan took great care of all the participants, telling very interesting stories all the way to the top. He also took many amazing pictures of all of us from all sorts of angles :)) It was great we started super early so we avoided hiking in a heat (it gets up to 40 degrees up there pretty quickly). Would recommend to anyone!

There’s a couple of hiking excursions you’ll see around but this one is IT. I cannot even explain it in words to justify how this one is definitely a must thing to do whilst in Mauritius. The view is just breathtaking and worth waking up early in the morning — no other people apart from us in terms of traffic and all photos are just spot on because there’s no noise in the background. The experience was made entirely exceptional by our guide, Bryn, who gave us exclusivity of the place and when you do it, you’ll know how and why. He had climbed major mountains in the world so you’re definitely in safe hands — take it from me who has only done basic trails (more like walks really). He had a very personal touch to the tour — from the island’s history to his nuggets of wisdom. I couldn’t have really asked for more and there’s no way it could get better than this. So better make sure you book this one and you won’t regret it!
