Le Morne Mountain: World Heritage Site by UNESCO
Located in the southern part of Mauritius, more precisely in the south-west, Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It is habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutoniana, which is our floral emblem. The hike to the summit of Le Morne Brabant lasts between three and four hours, depending on the pace and homogeneity of the group.
Our hiking partner has been guiding guests from all over the planet on this majestic rock for the past twelve years. Some steeper parts of the ascent will require the use of our hands to progress safely towards the top of Le Morne Mountain, where we’ll discover the breath-taking views on the west and south-west lagoons and part of of the island !
Declared World Heritage by UNESCO since July 6, 2008, the site is a sanctuary of the runaway slaves who would have committed suicide by jumping off the cliff of the mountain.

I found taxi service Mauritius whilst already halfway through our holiday and we booked the Le morne hiking trip and our return airport transfer through them. They are a great, professional company with loads of options on how to get the most out of your visit to Mauritius. Great value for money too. Special thanks to our hiking guide We learnt so much about the flora, fauna, culture and industry of Mauritius from him.
We booked the hike at le Morne and we enjoyed it.The hike becomes steeper as you go so you must be fit and bring lots of water with you! The hike is divided in two parts: first is public, but the second part is more for experienced climbers. Really nice hiking experience. The view was spectacular. Thank you Devina for helping us through the booking process.
Contacted taxi service Mauritius for the le morne hiking since we had to be there early morning and our driver was at the hotel 15 minutes earlier waiting for us but it is well worth it to get the view and the sunrise in the morning. The climb is achievable for a fairly fit person you might struggle with the heat hence why you go early morning. The guides are very helpful. Tips : bring mosquito repellant, a bottle of water and your camera is a must.
Awesome adventure. Would definitely recommend this tour if you enjoy hiking and an excellent view as a reward. Good fitness required with an early start. We would definitely do another hike with them when coming back to the island hopefully next year! Thanks to Devina who was very informative & responsive by email. Drivers are just professionals.
Great guides. The view was so beautiful. The guides was really good - both at explaining history, plants, birds and the area. He was also very concerned about the different hiking levels in the group and made sure everyone got a good hike. Highly recommended tour.
