About Pieter Both Mountain - Hiking Adventure
A guided hike in the natural flora of Mauritius with rewarding breath-taking 360 degree views from the second highest peak of the island.
The Pieter Both stands majestically in the Moka Mountain Range. It is visible from most of the western, central and northern roads you may take if you go out on scenic road trips in Mauritius. Climbing the mountain and getting back down is a good challenge for everyone passionate about outdoor activities and adventures.
The route begins in La Laura, a small peaceful village in the surrounding area. You will meet your guide who will give a briefing and instructions to guide you along your journey. You will begin walking on the trail that will lead to the notch just below the summit.
Throughout the trek, the guides will accompany you and help you whenever needed. They will also show you a few hidden treasures on the way to the top and narrate many stories about Mauritius and Pieter Both itself. The “main” attraction of the mountain is the big boulder , the gigantic rock formation at the very top of it which resembles a human head. This is often the most challenging part of the hike and to climb up, you will need the help of some ropes and the instructions of the guides.
Once at the top, take in the well deserved views of the island along with a great feeling of accomplishment. Get your pictures taken like the ones you have seen all over postcards and social media - this is after all a moment to never forget and to celebrate. You will then start to make your way back, satisfied with the day you have had and while enjoying some fresh local fruits and snacks.
