About
The first section of the hike travels through the forest of the mountain, allowing you to enjoy a nice meditative walk for 600 meters in the midst of indigenous plants and trees. The hike then continues to a section where you can enjoy magnificent views towards Port Louis and other peaks of the Moka range. Following 700 meters you will reach the shoulder of the mountain, at an altitude of 736 meters. This section is basically a large slightly inclined grassy land, providing amazing views towards the south and northeastern part of Mauritius. The hike continues to the peak. The last part towards the summit requires some rock scrambling. Once you arrive to the summit, be rewarded with an incredible 360-degree panoramic view. Whilst on the summit you are given enough time to relax and receive more information about your surroundings. Make your way back to the meeting point with your professional mountaineer ensuring your security the entire way.

Wonderful morning

The hike is definitely doable but it SO MUCH more enjoyable with an experienced guide who can coach and assist you through the more tricky sections and we learnt a lot about Mauritian nature. Looking forward to next trail with Kevin.

Amazing morning hike with Kevin as our guide. There were 6 of us, with different experiences of hiking. Kevin supported each and every one of us to the top. He is calm and makes you feel safe. Also has a wonderful knowledge of the flora, even got us to taste peppercorns from the mountains!
I definitely recommend using Horazis tours. I am looking forward to our next hike with Kevin.

Le Pouche hike
Oct 2019 • Friends
I booked this hike a month before my visit to Mauritius. Venture Mauritius was very prompt with the entire process of booking and approachable through WhatsApp. On the day of our hike we met Kevin who guided us throughout. He was polite, patient and encouraging throughout the entire hike. It felt safe to have hiked with him as he guided us well through the entire trail with a few tips and tricks to keep easy and light. The yummy pancakes and great conversations were like a cherry on a cake. I recommend this guidedhike with Venture Mauritius for sure, because there's a lot to Mauritius than beaches. The view of Mauritius from up there refreshes you and gives you a perspective too look at the country from a different view.
