My husband and I enjoyed this hike while visiting Mahe for a few days. It wasn’t too long, did have a few steep areas, but not difficult for us. The trail is mostly shaded, but it still gets very hot and humid, be sure to...More

It is a short hike, a bit challenging for our 4 year old but nothing too hard and very well marked ! Almost entirely in the shade, it was a great experience to walk in the jungle, look at the vegetation, the birds. The view...More

We initially wanted to go up the morne blanc trail, but the combination of mixed reviews, sudden rain showers and our taxi driver’s advice made us choose the Copolia Trail instead. In the end, I’m glad we made this choice ! The trail is easy...More

This trail is even easier than Morne Blanc : shorter, less steep and also cooler for some reason. And the view from the top is just as good ! Also you get to see plenty of carnivorous plants at the summit, look around !

A moderate to steep climb, certainly not easy by any means. Takes about 1 hour to climb (+/-15 mins) depending on your speed & stamina. Descending is about 35-40 mins. The view at the top breathtaking & if you’re lucky you’ll some nice breeze blowing...More
