Orangers Channel

Walking/pedestrian at Saint-Paul
  • It was once a narrow and dangerous path that allowed access to a few islets at the edge of the rampart (Ilet Cambour, for example). Then, work on the Orangers Channel began in 1965 to bring water from the catchments of the Grand Mère and Orangers ravines to the Highlands of Saint-Paul (Sans Soucis, Plaine Saint-Paul and Bois de Nèfles), ie more than 2000 households. This project would last more than ten years. Since then, this trail has been used by the inhabitants of Orangers and Lataniers to get to Saint-Paul, and especially by the many hikers who really appreciate this special path. It is in effect a huge balcony all along its length where you can admire the Cirque of Mafate. This magnificent path, which is often damaged by rock falls, is one of the favourite paths among hikers to enter Mafate because it’s flat and offers no great difficulty throughout almost its entire length.

    stationnement au bord de la route à l'arret de bus citerne rouge. ne pas prendre la piste en voiture. Montée durant 1h pour arriver au départ de la canalisation des orangers et avoir enfin du plat. On arrive rapidement dans le cirque. Difficile avec des enfants
