Point de vue sur le trou de fer, Hell-Bourg

#1 of 11 in Trails in Reunion Island
Follow one of the two hiking paths through scenic landscape to reach Point de vue sur le trou de fer, a dramatic, 300 m (1,000 ft) deep canyon of mossy cliffs and six waterfalls. The hikes differ in challenge level; whichever you choose, bring water and hiking footwear for your trek. The more difficult route takes over seven hours to complete, but you can break and refuel at huts along the way. Alternatively, take a helicopter tour of the canyon for sweeping views from above.

  • This is still one of the few walks to the reunion feasible with family with young children but allowing to see the beautiful and wild landscapes. The journey from the Gîte de Belouve is easy and, in the second part, fairy: a path on a wooden walkway under the large tamarins. magic. And then, after a long walk in the forest, one leads to a platform above a 500m precipice and facing an incredible view! Especially do not look at photos before you go. Although photos cannot make the size of the place, by looking at them you decrease the effect of surprise upon arrival. Trust the comments and the note, and go ahead with your eyes closed! The easiest way: the cavalier driveway, which starts on the access road to the gite de Belouve, 800m before the parking lot; Park in the parking lot and walk back to the cavalier driveway (forbidden to park at the level of the cavalier driveway).

  • After a walk in the wet forest with its superb vegetation, a part as very muddy by place thanks the boards! Arrival on this very deep hole or throws a very nice waterfall. Botanical and scenic hike not to be missed and to avoid if it rains.
