Discover Mountains Mauritius

The peaks of Mauritius are not as high as those of neighbouring Reunion Island, but they are however fun to hike around. Near Saint-Louis, Pieter-Both, Pouce and Mount Signaux form a protective circle around the capital city. Lost in the midst of the hills, many beautiful waterfalls can be visited for a refreshing swim. Rochester falls, near Souillac, reveal a rock formation shaped into stairs by the water. In the south, the trail of the Rivière Noire Gorges gives a unique view over the whole southern part of the island.
