Rather steep ascent but easy to follow. Took us about 45 minutes too get to the top, including breaks (drinking and photographing fruit bats, snails etc.). The viewing platform on the top was a bit disappointing because it was closed due to it's bad condition....More

The entire hike is about 1.5 hours to complete, its one of many in Victoria that you can do. There are some challenging sections along the way so it will not be suitable for everyone. Well worth going on the hike.

Morne Blanc was definitely worth the hike, but be prepared because it's about 90 minutes (round trip) of steps made of dirt, tree limbs, and rocks. My girlfriend is not a hiker and wasn't too pleased when we got started, but she had to concede...More

Artes a 1 km hike with 270 mts elevation and tough trail the view rewards your efford, the trail is shaded and can get slippery if it is wet. Perfect activity if you enjoy the nature of the island.

My husband and I enjoyed our walk, and the view at the top is a nice reward. The trail was not busy and we found the solitude comforting. We had understood that it would take 90 mins round trip, but it was shorter than that...More

It took us 1 hr to reach at the top. Most of the Steps are made out of tree trunks and branches on the route. Trek is steep and a bit slippery in places but manageable. Sports shoes are must & carry enough water. At...More

Hi, We will be travelling with our 23 months old daughter, we are moderately fit and had been into hiking and trekking earlier. Is this hike recommended with the 2 year old? We will be using a baby carrier also to carry her on our back.

Yes the bus will drop you right at it at tea plantation stop. Very easy just tell him when you get on.

Park alongside the tea plantation (parking is on your left). Walk up the road for about 4 or 5 minutes (there is a trail on the right side of the road- this is not it). The trail is up a little further on the left hand side.
