It is only a five minute walking approach which leads to the entrance to Fleur Jaune canyon.
The descent takes place inside a narrow gorge between two large cliffs. The particularity of Fleur Jaune is the abundance of rappels.
First we descend in small abseils / slides (12 to 20 meters) from suspended pools to suspended pools. Ideal for warming up !
Suddenly the canyon opens discovering a splendid view on Piton des Neiges summit and Cilaos village. Then follows the famous and unforgettable 55 meters rappel which is also descended by a rappel / slide. At this level you can make jumps from the left bank.
We finish the canyon with two rappels : a 35 meters and 20 meters.
After a sunny picnic, the walk to the car park is by a very steep track with passages with ropes to help you. This will be an opportunity to contemplate a magnificent view of the canyon. The end of the walk is an aerial ridge fully equipped with fixed ropes.
That safe, but it can be impressive for some people.
