Full description
A 4WD vehicle will take you from the designated meeting point through a private estate in which RESA deer, wild pigs, and numerous bird species including pheasant, quail, and guinea-foul reside. Begin the hike and traverse along the North-Western base of the mountain, allowing for two panoramic perspectives of the mountain to be appreciated of the North Western and South Eastern flanks. The initial hike follows an undulating path that is designed to warm up your muscles and elevate your heart-rate before the scrambling and climbing sections begin. At 340 meters above sea level, you will have a safety and mountain security briefing prior to the first of the four scrambling and climbing sections. There is a 70-meter, 25-meter, 15-meter, and 10-meter section. They provide the most spectacular views of the lush mountain ranges of Chamarel as well as stunningly beautiful lagoon views of both the North-Western and South-Eastern coasts that extend in front of you to the horizon. Various rest points provide a unique opportunity for the team to take memorable photographs of you and your family so that the once-in-a-lifetime experience can never be forgotten. Arrive at the summit of the V with a just reward for all of your efforts and hard work as the views are well worth it. The team will provide you with additional information, whilst taking photographs and allowing you the opportunity to have a break and appreciate the location and its amazing surroundings.

Tour: The tour was amazing. Bryn's company has special access to the area which others companies don't have. That means that we were able to start earlier and fully experience the breathtaking sunrise. We also did not have to climb in the heat which is quite an advantage considering the fact that the volcano stones heat up during the day. The hike was really amazing with lots of viewpoints. It took us about 3 hours. The view on the top was our highlight of Mauritius. Words can describe it, you gotta experience it! Guide: Bryn was by far the best guide we've ever experienced in our lives! He loves what he is doing and was one of the most positive people we've ever met. He's quite knowledgeable and has years of climbing experience and we felt super save all the way. He took tons of great pictures and created an amazing video for us. Equipment: We definitely recommend to bring proper shoes, water (a backpack to carry it - you need your hands for some climbing passages) and sunscreen.

Amazing experience! We enjoyed the sights all way and the track itself was fun and so worth doing. Shout out and big thanks to our guide Bryn who made this experience this enjoyable. We got to learn on the way about Mauritian history and nature from him. On top, Bryn took great photos and videos of the whole group. Highly recommend this to everyone who visits Mauritius.

Wonderful experience

Bryn is a wonderful host. He is an experience climber who has knowledge of the plants, history and keeps an eye on the weather. Insurance is provided with this trip. Although you can climb this by yourself, it may be difficult to navigate (and dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing). He provided us with wonderful photos of the day as you often need two hands to climb.
