The 3 Salazes classic :

The classic 3 Salazes with a mountain guide, this is the ridge (hiking / climbing) that any visitor to Reunion Island should consider ! The fame of the “Three Salazes” ridge has exceeded the limits of our beautiful island and for good reason ! This is undoubtedly the route which offers the most beautiful panoramas on Mafate and Cilaos cirques .

Although classified as tropical mountaineering terrain, this route is not very technical. But sometimes it can be impressive. Accessible to the greatest number, provided that you have sufficient stamina because it’s a long day !

The 3 Salazes classic ridge tour description :

Meeting at 04:00 am at the “Taïbit pass” car park (See below the routable map with a smartphone / GPS.). It’s on the road between Cilaos and Ilet à Corde in the Cilaos circus. You will collect the technical gear for the tour.

Departure for the hike at 4:15 am.

After 02:15 hours walking, we arrive at dawn on the ridge that separates the Mafate and Cilaos circus.

At this time begins the route with a duration of approximately 06 hours. We roped up together to cross the most streamlined and aerial part of the ridge and arrive at a pass where the climbing starts.
After two easy climbing pitches we finally arrive at the 3 Salazes.
We then climb the central Salaze. By a zipline we cross until the first Salaze.
From there, a sequence of three successive gradual abseils (8m, 25m, 37m) allows us to regain the pass.
It is then necessary to traverse the ridge in the opposite direction to find the path to the descend.

Along the descent to the car park, which takes about two hours walking, you can admire your route on the ridge and also enjoy the magnificent view of the Piton des Neiges / Gros Morne ridge.
