. Dicovering the Morne Brabant - The slave route The Morne Brabant is a mountain of the south-west of Mauritius, on the peninsula of the Morne. Declared World Heritage by UNESCO since July 6, 2008, the site is a sanctuary for runaway slaves and is a strong cultural and patrimonial symbol for every Mauritian. Being on private land, Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It includes a multitude of endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutonania, and its red flaming flower. The hike to the summit of Morne Brabant lasts between three and four hours, depending on the homogeneity of the group. Once on top, we discover the breathtaking panoramic views on the west and south-west lagoons and part of of the island.

A few days ago, I went to hike Le Morne Brabant with some friends. It was a really great experience and the view was breath-taking! It was not too high and I found the ascension quite easy, while I had a bit of difficulty on the way back.

Le Morne Brabant is spectacular. You can reach a really great lookout point quite easily by following the main track up. After that it gets rocky and narrow, which is why many choose to go with a guide. Definitely recommend giving it a go. It's much more organised and managed than many other earlier reviews suggest.

Got a cab to the Mount, climbed it and the views were amazing. I was staying at the Riu Creole and found a path return back to Hotel by fooot, so there is a path there if you don't want to get a cab....worth a climb.

The first part is a moderately steep climb however the second has ropes placed so be prepared. However, we were well coaxed through the trip by Yan of Yanature who I have great admiration for. A few heights at the top but views over the whole south of the island including coconut island and more. I will definitely be back... More

Drive to base on Southside -thru the picnic area on dirt road, then along beach edge. Parking at entrance. 3.6km to top. First 2.5km is straight forward -used by 4 wheel drives. Climbs quickly. The last 1000-750m is challenging, several ropes to help pull yourself up. Jagged granite rocks for hand/foot hold. Wear right shoes - I had joggers, but... More

It is a scramble to the top no doubt - have to be on all fours for the last 100 odd meters which makes climbing down near vertical in some portions. But what views - truly spectacular - can't be a nature lover and not be floored. It was raining on and off when we went so that added to... More

A must background in any le morne photo. It is a national heritage site so now way to climb it. We looked but no public footpaths could be found. Hotel said you can hire a guide to take you up but we did not have time :(

Stunning backdrop for pictures, if you go round the side of the rock you'll find a little beach where there's no wind

We drove to Le Morne Brabant and spent a couple of lovely afternoons watching the daring kitesurfers and windsurfers. There is always a strong breeze there. we visited the memorial which was worth a walk around
