Lovely views

Very beautiful views. This is easy to get to and the walk from the car park is very short. Very interesting history.

The view is magnificent: is probably the highest spot in Mahe and you have a great view. The history too is fascinating with the Mission being built to teach the children of the newly free slaves. Lots of information regarding the trees around and the fact that Marianne North was there painting trees and flowers is very interesting. Really worth... More

It can hardly be called a trek if you are going by car. Its a 5 step walk from the parking. The view from the top is breathtaking. You can just sit there for an hour looking at the beautiful view.

Easy to access even under a rain of December. Historical site of Seychelles. Beautiful view on the mountains, forest and islands on the sea. There are a lot of guided tour but it's enough to wait a little bit and after you will have the lodge alone. Feel that moment!

Besides the magnificent views on a clear day the short walk gives some insight into the history of the Seychelles.

The Mission Lodge is a historical site. Used to be a school where children of former slaves were schooled by missionaries. Next to that, it serves as a small arboretum. Several plants and trees have sign posts explaining their origin. The lookout is spellbinding. Beautiful view of the surrounding forests and the beaches of the south of Mahe island.

The views from this location are fabulous, set high in the mountains and landmarks a point in history for the island. Information boards explain.
