  • The track is not so easy. Around 30 minutes from easy to almost climbing with the trees' roots. But at the top, the 360° view is awesome ! Pictures on the rock are stunning !!! A must do in...  more »
  • Challenging but worth it! Need of patience and courage, but seriously worth it
  • A walk with breathtaking views of the whole south of Mayotte. Allow 1 hour to climb at an average rate. Some parts are close to climbing but this is still accessible.
