Le Morne Brabant, Le Morne

(4.7/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
The rugged, mountainous peninsula of Le Morne Brabant stands as a World Heritage Site and symbol of the abolitionist movement in the country. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, runaway slaves sought shelter here, living in the caves cut from the basalt rock. In 1835, Mauritius abolished slavery, and a police expedition traveled to the peninsula to inform the runaways of their freedom. Tragically, the community misunderstood the intentions of the approaching officers, and many jumped from the cliffs to their deaths. Book a guided tour of this historical site, and along the way explore the peninsula's unique microclimate, interesting plant life, and impressive geological features.

  • This is NOT a climb but a hard walk, and one has to be reasonably fit to do it. There is a wide track to follow with a little bit of hard work at the end where you will find ropes to help you up the r...  more »
  • It is one of the "must" in Mauritius. Excursion of two stages: the initial is a simple path of about 3, 5km and the second from 1 or 2 km more complicated (yet affordable for anyone with a minimum of form). But, without a doubt, both worth the excursion itself as by the breathtaking views from the top. It is recommended to go with guide for ease of ascent. There are two routes: one more open that you must go to first hour and other more shaded. 4-hour excursion at a quiet pace. Carry plenty of water.
