Le Morne

Le Morne Brabant is located on the south west tip of Mauritius. Apart from standing proud at a height of 556 metres above sea level, the mountain is a commemorative landmark of a harsh period of slavery that existed in Mauritius. Le Morne was once a refuge for runaway slaves who built small settlements in the many caves that exist there. Following the abolition of slavery in 1835, an expedition travelled to the mountain to let the slaves know that they were now free. Unfortunately the purpose of the visit was misunderstood and the slaves, fearing the worst they all jumped to their death from the rock.

The mountain has remained a poignant reminder and in 2008 became an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Le Morne is now a very popular place for visitors who are attracted by the wide variety of flora and fauna on offer and for those who enjoy walking and hiking, with spectacular views of the island to be seen from the summit.
