Point de vue sur le trou de fer, Hell-Bourg

#1 of 11 in Trails in Reunion Island
Follow one of the two hiking paths through scenic landscape to reach Point de vue sur le trou de fer, a dramatic, 300 m (1,000 ft) deep canyon of mossy cliffs and six waterfalls. The hikes differ in challenge level; whichever you choose, bring water and hiking footwear for your trek. The more difficult route takes over seven hours to complete, but you can break and refuel at huts along the way. Alternatively, take a helicopter tour of the canyon for sweeping views from above.

  • Definitely worth the effort to do the Cirque Salazie drive up to where a paying parking is definitely walking up to La nouvelle

  • Magical view if you can access it early enough because the view is often blocked in the late morning. For the route choose preferably the trail, less muddy than the traditional trail.

  • Really nice path somewhat muddy (obviously depends on weather), possibility for walking disabled to take a forest road. Once there majestic and impressive view (sometimes cloudy) but many helicopters overhead. Will recommend going there to everyone.
  • Great hike, the viewpoint offers amazing view over the scenery and the waterfall.
