Le Pouce Sunset Hike
Le Pouce Mountain, noticeable from a distance, got its name from its thumb-shaped peak. This hiking experience with KEEP THE PACE will bring you up to a height of 812 meters with fantastic views of the capital city of Port Louis and the expanding village of St Pierre.
The hike up to the second plateau of the mountain is quite easy and leads to a viewing platform where you will have a better understanding of the volcanic origin of the island. The last few meters to the very top will require some climbing and is a bit more challenging.
Reward awaits at the mountaintop! Overlooking the Moka Mountain Range and parts of the North of the island you will be able to witness the sun setting at the horizon. After this breathtaking experience, you will make your way back using head torches. With the spreading darkness, you will get to experience a different feel of the place.
An easy to medium hike to Le Pouce Moutain challenging you to do a bit of mountain climbing before reaching the peak that offers great view over the Moka Mountain Range and parts of the North of the island. Here you will witness the sun setting over the Mauritian landscape.
