‘walk and be happy – walk and be healthy’ Charles Dickens
An opportunity to hike in a peaceful area where you can test your endurance while connecting with nature.
We recommend you visit the nearby Seven Coloured Earths, a unique volcanic geological phenomenon resulting in seven colours of earth swirled together to create a beautiful feature.
A few kilometres away from the Green-Cottage Chamarel, lies Ebony Forest, a 50Ha conservation area for Mauritian endemic species with a rehabilitated indigenous forest, including now the rare Ebony tree. This place is definitely worth a visit.
From Green-Cottage Chamarel you can also make longer walks, to the summit of the Black River Peak (828m) or try the Parakeet trail. Both trails are in the Black River Gorges, the largest and finest National Park in Mauritius.
Le Morne Brabant (556M) shouldn’t be daunting for an average hiker. The mountain looms over the peninsula next to an ‘underwater waterfall’ that can be seen from the sky. Well organised hiking services are available.
