First and foremost, this is a hike. To ensure the comfort and safety of all visitors, it is important to bring your essentials. A few welcome additions to your trip would be water, sunscreen and comfortable shoes. Additionally, it is best to avoid visiting on a rainy day. Consequently, you may fall victim to the elements.
The hiking trail will take you through a lush forest, complete with cinnamon trees, fruit trees, rare tropical birds and even centuries-old ruins! Above all, charge your phone! You’ll definitely want to snap a few one of a kind Instagram shots.
Seychelles’ rich history goes back to the 18th century, which saw the European colonies bring slaves from around Africa. Missionaries later opened a school on Mission Lodge for the children of slaves far from settlements. The Liberated Slaves Cemetery Monument provides an incredibly humbling view further up the trail. Fun fact – Queen Elizabeth II took tea here in 1972.
