Panorama in Paradise!

Well worth the 45-60 min round trip from the road. Easy assess by bus or car from Victoria. The perfect hike to break up an island tour or watch the sun come up... Enjoy!

This trail is good for experienced and unexperienced hikers alike. the first 45 minutes of the trail will take you to the first view point, which has fallen into an ill-state, as it once was an excellent place to have a picnic. If you are a little more daring, the photo provided by TripAdvisor actually shows the start of the... More

It is a relatively easy and interesting trail. You get to see a lot of interesting plants and fruits along the way. We went with a highly experienced guide Mr Basil. The ascent is gentle, but gets tough at times, and the last 50 feet is particularly steep. You get to see hundreds of Pitcher Plants and Red pineapples towards... More

Amazing trail easy at the beginning and terrible at the end for those who have a fear of heights. But if you get over your fear, you will be presented a breathtaking view on top. I do not recommend to clime with children or at least do half way. But if you like adventures, jumping over the gaps between rocks... More

To be frank, one must be very fit to take on the trail, it is not an easy trail, but it is worth it if you made it to the end, you discover most of the central and northern part of Mahe, when you are on the peak.

Start of the trail is just super easy, but after the first lookout point it will totally change. Sometimes you really need to climb and when temperature is over 30c you really need to drink a lot. Me and my wife are both in good shape, at home having several hours of sports every day and we were few times... More

I went up the trail while geocaching. It is not your USA grade National Park Trail it you want to get up this trail you will have to work for it. I like that in my head a lot more than on the actual trail. It was hot, humid and quite a bit more rugged than my out of shape... More

track is easy to find with info board by bus stop. track was once well made with lots of granite cobbles and chain hand rails and although fallen into a bit of disrepair and erosion its still an easy hour walk up through some nice forest the the first lookout spot back over town - but even find the right...
