Getting there

The walk starts not far from the National Park headquarters at the Morne Seychellois trailhead on Sans Soucis Rd. 

Route/Trail notes

Up until recently this walk required a full days bushbash and scramble to get to the summit, however in the past few years the Government and local guides have worked tirelessly to build and maintain a track with stairs/ladders and even little information boards along the way. The first half of the journey is up a relentlessly steep track that eventually eases off into a more undulating path. Don't let this lull you into thinking the worst is over because the last quarter is just as steep as the first half and includes a few sections where you will be aided with ropes and ladders. On a clear day you will be greeted with amazing views over the mountains, beaches and distant islands of the Seychelles. 


250 SCR (roughly 25AUD) for the National Park daily pass which can be purchased online or in person - and roughly 175AUD for a guide. Having a guide is mandatory due to previous instances of tourists getting lost. Bertrand Richemond @thecooltourguide is one such guide who offers day trips up to the summit.

Really enjoyed this mountain! The trail reminded me so much of the hikes you find up around the Gold Coast hinterland like Mt Cougal. I didn't have to worry about navigation due to having a guide but can see how people would get lost up there, particuarly near the summit where there are quite a few other tracks leading in different directions. Very happy with my guide and can't recommend him enough! @thecooltourguide was friendly, happy to go as fast or as slow as is required, genuinely passionate about his job and the mountains. We made fairly good time reaching the summit in 1hr45 and were lucky to get some good views. On the way back down saw a Wolf Snake and some carnivorous Pitcher plants.
