Hiking Le Morne Mountain Details
As part of your plan for hiking Le Morne Mountain, there are few things that you should know.
Duration: Hiking Le Morne Mountain is likely to take between 3 and 4 hours with regular water and snack breaks. The time can increase depending on the number of breaks you choose and the time you spend to click photos. But with us, you get plenty of time, i.e. 8 hours to complete the hike.
Difficulty: The first half of the hiking Le Morne Mountain is easy; it has a well-marked trail with a gradual incline. However, there is a considerable increase in the difficulty level once you reach the halfway mark. The path is much steeper to the extent at times you might need to use your hand to climb the rocks and boulders. But let this hardship not put you off, the view from the top is incredible as well as the hike itself. On the way down, you can sit and slide over the boulders.
Time to hike: We recommend you to start hiking as early as possible and try to avoid hiking in the middle of the day. The temperature soars in Mauritius during the afternoon. Also, be careful not to hike during the sunset or in the dark as there are boulders and rocks.
