Le Pouce Mountain, noticeable from a distance, got its name from its thumb-shaped peak. This hiking experience with KEEP THE PACE will bring you up to a height of 812 meters with fantastic views of the capital city of Port Louis and the expanding village of St Pierre.

The hike up to the second plateau of the mountain is quite easy and leads to a viewing platform where you will have a better understanding of the volcanic origin of the island. The last few meters to the very top will require some climbing and is a bit more challenging.

Reward awaits at the mountaintop! Overlooking the Moka Mountain Range and parts of the North of the island you will be able to witness the sun setting at the horizon. After this breathtaking experience, you will make your way back using head torches. With the spreading darkness, you will get to experience a different feel of the place.

  • Experience: 
    An easy to medium hike to Le Pouce Moutain challenging you to do a bit of mountain climbing before reaching the peak that offers great view over the Moka Mountain Range and parts of the North of the island. Here you will witness the sun setting over the Mauritian landscape.

  • 360 views across the whole of Mauritius!
Amazing hike up Le Pouce mountain, and definitely worth the effort! It's not a long hike, and for the most part not particularly challenging - we walked up and down this mountain in about 3 hours, with quite a long rest at the top to enjoy the spectacular views. Views from the top are absolutely amazing! You can see the entire island, with 360 views all around. Excellent views of Pieter Both and Port Louis, and you can see all the way to Le Morne in the south, and on a clear day you can see Round Island, lying 22km off the north coast of Mauritius. Definitely do this walk on a clear day!

  • This is a great hike that
This is a great hike that results in fantastic views looking over Mauritius, particularly at sunset! Once I got to the top it was breathtaking and well worth the effort to get there. The team from Keep The Pace that took me were very friendly and patient with my questionable fitness, and I felt looked after during the whole thing. PinkMango themselves were great with communication and organisation, sorting out the best transfer times in order for me to get to the top in time for sunset. I highly recommend doing this hike - make sure you have a camera on you!
