randomly decided to climb it one day... First bit, no problem (we're generally fit people). Next bit was good fun, climbing and great views. Then started to get a little trickier... We got to about 50m from the top where there was a decent plateau...More

We climbed Le Morne in the afternoon with a guide. A great trek with quite steep climbing. We brought our 10 year old son - he was way faster than us! Excellent views almost 360. Great to have a local guide who can tell the...More

Le Morne has great views on the South Western coral reefs of Mauritius. The first 45 mins are basically a hike that is not difficult at all, although it is just walking upwards and can be a little bit tiring. Try to start early in...More

Absolutely gorgeous view from Le Morne Brabant! The way up to the top of the mountain might be tricky at times but with a guide it’s really easy and we felt safe during the whole climb. No professional equipment or climbing experience is needed to...More

If you would like to the very top (metall cross) you need to be fit and do not scared of vertical exposition. These days belaying lines are demounted so top section is rather like easy climb vs hike. Anyhow the view pays it all!

We tried once and did not feel strong enough to safely reach the top and get down. No guide, no ropes, no limit to access, just a book to sign in at the bottom then again as you leave. We tried again a week later...More

On our way back from the hotel we stop to climb up the hill and the view was breathtaking. It’s definitely a place to visit

Everything has been said except our opinion on needing a guide. If you are a strong hiker (we are in our late 50s), with hiking boots, and there is no rain, there is no need for a guide to get to the cross.
