Excellent Hiking Experience!

The path is pretty straightforward. We stopped at several spots to drink some water and take some nice pictures. You’ll have such amazing views of the blue lagoon all along the hike! Definitely a must!

Really amazing view from the top of the mountain. I took great pictures of the blue lagoon! Recommend bringing water, good pair of shoes and a hat or cap.

Tiring but overall worth it!

I had a lot of fun enjoying this unique experience of climbing on Le Morne Brabant mountain. The first part of the hiking was less challenging , however the second part was a bit demanding as it’s really steep. There were ropes also. The route was quite clear. The view at the top was absolutely stunning and rewarding. I would surely recommend this activity, worth the price! Do bring a bottle of water, hat and good hiking shoes.
