On your way, pause for some bird-watching: the site is abundant with a variety of species, some of them very rare, such as Comoro blue and olive pigeons, Mayotte sunbirds, and white-eyes.

  • 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
  • Une ballade avec une vue à couper le souffle sur tout le sud de Mayotte. Prévoyez 1h pour monter à un rythme moyen. Certaines parties sont proches de l'escalade mais cela reste accessible.
