After a good half an hour of walk on a dirt road, the private domaine of Mont sur Mont opens its' doors. The view of the valley is magnificent, nature here is still intact, full of indigenous plants. At a viewpoint called "The Window", the view of the majestic Morne Brabant is stunning!
This hike on dirt roads is a total of 12km long and the ascents and descents are gentle. The first 2 km are the same in both directions, the rest of the course is a loop.
A visit of the 7 Coloured Earth is a must after this hike.
The technical hike : the path from Mont sur Mont to Chamarel starts at the 7 Coloured Earth on a 2 km long dirt road. The path leads you uphill to a viewpoint called 'The Window" from where you will have a stunning view of the Morne Brabant and the Ile aux Bénétiers, about 400 m above sea level.
A single track pathway then leads you to the summit of the mountain La Porte, with a few climbing sections before your arrival. Here, you will have an even better, more exclusive view.
A small pathway on the ridge then takes you through an indigenous forest and culminates on the next summit : the Piton du Fouge : 596m.
The single track path continues on the ridge along this mountain chain and takes us to another pathway offering fantastic views of the valleys, the summits and in the distance, the blues of the beautiful lagoons.
