Mont Choungui, Chirongui

#6 of 20 in Outdoors in Mayotte
Hike up to the second-tallest point on the island, Mont Choungui, a volcanic mountain standing at a height of 593 m (1,946 ft). On your way, pause for some bird-watching: the site is abundant with a variety of species, some of them very rare, such as Comoro blue and olive pigeons, Mayotte sunbirds, and white-eyes. You may bump into other species that make their home here, including different types of geckos and turtles. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Chirongui holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mont Choungui and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Accessible for non-hikers but be careful you have to take your time and have a minimum of physics. 600m of vertical drop but to climb vertically, in places it's "almost" climbing! The forest is dense and beautiful! After that, the effort is largely rewarded with the splendid view of all Mayotte!! In the morning great colors on the lagoon, the evening super sunset but watch out for the night drop! (Provide water and mosquito repellent)

  • Super site The view is deserved it is necessary to crapahuter at times it is even climbing we climb like makis hang roots. Good tap slippers not recommend. 45 min to climb but once the high view has cut the breath a maré bass c beautiful. Pictures mandatory on the lion king's rock as I call it. I recommend this outing. I'm going to try it again soon to admire a sunrise
