Description

Every Tuesday and Thrusday, I suggest you go to the heart of the jagged relief of the Mafate cirque to soak up the historical magic of these places.

This route in the mountains of Reunion Island lasts about 6 hours for a distance of 12 kilometres and a positive and negative difference in altitude of 550m.

If I am not available, a colleague from the Bureau Montagne Réunion will be in charge of the supervision.

Program

  • Departure every Tuesday and Thursday.
  • After 30 minutes of 4WD vehicle track in the bed of the Rivière des Galets, the trail begins with a succession of fords and then quickly rises to reach the Cayenne islet.
  • Return via the footbridge which offers a 360 degree panorama overlooking waterfalls and pools.
  • Be careful, this hike often requires participants to walk in the water! (water height under the knees)
  • There are a few fords and a relatively large altitude difference for children. The minimum age recommended is 8 years.
  • NOTE: in case of closure of the 4WD track, I will propose an alternative hike around Mafate.

  • Supervision by the mountain leader.
  • A snack with local drinks.
