Excursion «The ascent
of the Pic Saint-Louis»

The most popular walk from Tolagnaro (Fort Dauphin), of course, climbing on the Pic Saint Louis, which you cannot miss, since The Pic Saint Louis is the only place where you can admire magnificent views of Fort Dauphin and its region. This peak dominates the whole city and culminates at 529 m of altitude.

Better to start early in the morning because at midday the sun is sometimes too hot. From August to October, there are sometimes large sprays of water on the sea: it is the breath of whales that pass on the horizon.

For security reasons, it is better to be accompanied by our guide and you should have pants not to scratch the legs on the bushes from the top of the slopes. The services of a guide are essential that you cannot get lost on the way. They will tell you stories and legends about the peak and Fort-Dauphin in general, about those good times to enhance your climb to the most spectacular viewpoint of Tolagnaro!

The ascent of the Pic Saint Louis is not only reserved for adventurers and sportsmen. Any visitor, in good physical condition, can embark on this incredible adventure. The climb is not very difficult and two trails lead to the summit. The first is from the SIFOR factory (company operating sisal where we can drop you off), this is the shortest but also the steepest way (climb in about 1 hour 30 minutes). The second option starts at Marillac and passes through rocky trails crossing the green mountain (2 to 3 hours walk). Trekking lovers will be delighted to climb and find themselves surrounded by the luxurious vegetation where ravenalas, raphias, orchids and periwinkles intermingle in a grandiose setting.

From the summit, you will see the bay of Sainte Luce and the village of Manafiafy, the place where the first French settlers, commanded by Jacques Pronis, landed in Madagascar in 1642. A little further east, bathing calmly in the Indian Ocean, there are the Lokaro Islands. Turn your gaze to the East and Southeast: you will notice the Evatra Point and its fishing village, the lagoon Andriambe, Cape Ranavalona and the False Bay of Galleons. To the west and northwest lies the profile of the Anosy Mountains, overlooking the magnificent forests of the Berenty Reserve and Andohahela National Park.

Enjoy all the beauty of Fort Dauphin by climbing the Pic St Louis.
