Bras Rouge on!

Bras Rouge canyon is located in Cilaos,  just below the Piton des Neiges, and could be under strong water rises after heavy rains repeated, so we have not been there since last December because the "rain season" here in Reunion Island is really not the time for the descent of this magnificent canyon, but today we finally returned again and with an ideal water level !

Trou blanc - On!

Good news : we return to the canyon of Trou Blanc since early April , the water level has fallen back within an acceptable range for practicing the activity. Located in Salazie , Hell Bourg specifically the "White Hole" canyon is a must on the island of Réunion and is among one of the best of the world. This canyon is aquatic and very playful : it is composed of many slides, as impressive as each other, cut with perfection in basalt. Canyon Trou Blanc is a short canyon to explore when you are passing on Reunion Island and you like sports of nature! Outings are organized every day and costs 75 € / person, including equipment and coaching .

Back to Takamaka!

Last Saturday, we went back into the canyon of Takamaka with Cécile, Hugo and Romain doing their first major canyon after Fleur Jaune and Ferriere... so to honor that first descent we chose the guided abseil option to get down into the "Mini Trou de Fer ", so emotion was at the measure of the beauty of the place :

Ravine Grand Mère, Mafate, Reunion Island

Mafate, an ideal place to combine hiking and canyoning

At the end of September, we went for a little excursion on two days in the Mafate, with the aim of going down into the ravine Grand Mere.

This canyon can be toured by day with 4x4 taxi to shorten the approach and return, but we chose to take the time doing the walk of 3-4h approach the day before from the path of the pipeline "canalisation des orangers" and take the opportunity to spend the night in Mafate, where it is possible to be is housed in lodging or bivouac. We were able to do the canyon the next day without hurrying and to come back by the islet of "lataniers" and then resume the wonderful balcony trail of"canalisation des orangers".

The interest of this descent lies as much in the majestic setting of hiking to reach Mafate, inaccessible to cars, as in the descent of the canyon.
