Le Morne Brabant, Le Morne

4.7
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.

  • Once a few years ago at the place where the end of the path on foot and mountain cool goes up, was security and barbed wire, missed the only tourists, accompanied by an experienced guide and with equipment currently on this site sign: "you go to your own risk ", and not just so: way to the top is really requires some preparation and efforts, and even desirable to overcome fear of heights. In General, it may take 3-4 hours, at the bottom there is a parking. Well, if your company is someone more or less sporty to drive, because you need to climb the hands and feet (Monkey) is sometimes not visible for any stone catch. Nothing in our hands, just backpacks under his belt, it is necessary to water. Even scary to imagine how it is dangerous in rainy weather, when the stones are slippery! Best true climbing tours, at some sites was really ill at ease from the angle of ascent. People, oddly enough, a lot of: constantly having to Miss someone down and up. And by the way, rise up is Paul deeds in all senses, down had to be even more cautious path seen even less. However, the view from the top is worth all the effort, incredible beauty, even a little can be seen underwater waterfall, beautiful photos, impressions and memories for a lifetime.

  • We made the ascent of le Morne with a guide and we had an absolutely fabulous time and off the beaten path! arrival one just incredible view of the lagoon of le Morne that worth all the effort to go up! just watch out for people suffering from Vertigo or little sports, hiking remains intense and difficult on the last 45 minutes with climbing at hands naked and precipices! sensations guaranteed :-) do not attempt without a guide unless you stay on the lower part, that it is easy and classic, accessible to all.
