Hike up to the second-tallest point on the island, Mont Choungui, a volcanic mountain standing at a height of 593 m (1,946 ft). 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. You may bump into other species that make their home here, including different types of geckos and turtles.

  • One romps for about an hour to finally get to the top and there you really take full view! Our little 4 year old and 1/2 participated without too much difficulty. Be careful all the same.
