Hike up to the second-tallest point on the island, Mont Choungui, a volcanic mountain standing at a height of 593 m (1,946 ft). On your way, pause for some bird-watching: the site is abundant with a variety of species, some of them very rare, such as Comoro blue and olive pigeons, Mayotte sunbirds, and white-eyes. You may bump into other species that make their home here, including different types of geckos and turtles.

Be careful all the same.
Vue époustouflante sur Mayotte ! À faire !

To do! Wrong path however (do not hesitate to ask the access road to the premises as there is no sign notifying the path from the road). A little steep climb in some places. Include a good pace. But once there, the 360 view is just wow! (Despite the overcast for our part)

We had the option to stop a few hundred meters before the village attracted several cars parked along the road. A trail starts to the right of the building (tank?) closed. You directly enter a well shaded, dense forest. After about 1 km, you arrive at a crossroads leading to a marked route GR. it likely comes from Choungui in the South. So take left towards North (Attention, well find this intersection because back, you need to highlight markup Gr. Take to the right while your path is blocked by a GR cross on a stone). Along the GR, you will meet a t-junction materialized by an explanatory panel mount Choungui. Join in the path perpendicular to the Gr. After a while, you will understand quickly by the elevation you are on the right path. The elevation is growing rapidly while remaining accessible provided that you have a minimum physical condition and especially shoes with good designs, but not necessarily big boots market. The escalation will be on dry, dusty Earth sometimes, with many rocks and roots. The reward at the top is at the height of the effort: superb panorama on the South of the island. The site is quite busy, so not really a sense of insecurity. Need to leave early because the heat is quickly overwhelming during climbing. 1 litre of water per person will be welcomed along the way.
Old extinct volcano. The slight climb at the beginning almost Vertical to the end then plateau in high mountain beautiful panorama of 360 °.
