Le Morne Brabant, Le Morne

4.7
The rugged, mountainous peninsula of Le Morne Brabant stands as a World Heritage Site and symbol of the abolitionist movement in the country. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, runaway slaves sought shelter here, living in the caves cut from the basalt rock. In 1835, Mauritius abolished slavery, and a police expedition traveled to the peninsula to inform the runaways of their freedom. Tragically, the community misunderstood the intentions of the approaching officers, and many jumped from the cliffs to their deaths. Book a guided tour of this historical site, and along the way explore the peninsula's unique microclimate, interesting plant life, and impressive geological features. Our Le Morne tour itinerary planner makes visiting Le Morne Brabant and other Le Morne attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The trail begins on a signposted parking lot and quickly goes up through the forest. At the entrance to wear in a book with the start time. According to well 2, 5km standing before deciding to take the heavy part in attack. On 1, 6km, 310Hm be overcome. It is recommended to start very early. I went off at 9: 00 and it was very hot. The climbing section is not to be underestimated. The Outlook as a reward but a dream. Wear sturdy shoes and bring plenty of water.

  • The Morne and its dramatic history was a priority for this trip to Mauritius, hiking is initially quiet, broad track with of ascent by place, arrived at the level of the barrier it gets complicated... I made it in time with break pictures in the late morning, used to make sport and the heat I was able to complete without incident... However my advice to the less experienced to leave early but especially the last 800 meters to avoid if physically weak, I met some people paralysed not knowing what to do... to avoid with kids under 12/13 years... CAUTION...
