About Lion Mountain

Lion Mountain is a protruding mountain in the Bambous mountain range. It is visible from Mahebourg and is also very famous for its vegetation and amazing views of the south east. It is one of the mountains across the bay, said to be the only witness left of the ‘Bataille Of Vieux Grand Port.”

The Lion Mountain hike usually starts in the sugarcane fields and then follows through the woods and then ends at the peak. Caution should be exercised during the hike, as some of the places are rocky and quite challenging.
