Trois Frères Trail

The Troise Frères hiking trail on Mahé is a great, short hiking trail that leads to a spectacular viewing point. The starting point of the trail is located above Victoria on Sans Soucis Road. If you’re coming from Victoria, the hiking trail board is located on the right hand side of the road, right next to the bus stop. You can park your rental car along the street to the right, by the side of the road.

Check that you’ve got everything with you, including your camera, water, and a hat, before setting off on the trail. The start of the hike leads up a small road. Once you get up to the milestone, the real trail begins, leading into a palm tree forest. The first few metres lead through this lush vegetation before you quickly reach some natural stairs that bring you higher up. Take a small break and enjoy the palm forest! With a bit of luck, you might even see some green geckos, although that can be difficult with the green surroundings!

Once you’ve arrived at the first viewing point, you can look all around at the lush green nature that covers the island of Mahé. It’s truly breathtaking just how quickly you can lose yourself in nature once you’re away from the capital city of Victoria. Follow the path further up until you reach two small water springs, which run down the side of a stone and make a small water pool. It’s a great idea to cool off your hands and maybe even wash your face here in the cool mountain water.

After some more steps, you’ll reach some signposts, and from here it’s just 300 metres to the end of the trail, giving you the final motivation you need to make it up the last few steps to the top. Once you’re up at the peak, it’s time to get the camera out and take plenty of photos to remember your surroundings. There is a covered hut here as well, where you can take a break and enjoy the views of the capital below, as well as the Sainte Anne Marine Park, and of course the Trois Frères mountains, translated as the “Three Brothers”. These lie above you, and you can only see the top when the sky is free of clouds.

Once you’ve taken enough photos and cooled off a bit from the climb, it’s time to head back down the trail. This is almost entirely downhill, so is quite a lot quicker and easier than the climb.
