Piton des Neiges
Travel to Piton des Neiges – High Point of Reunion Island – Peak of Snow
At 3071m high, Piton des Neiges is the highest mountain on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion. An alpine-class peak, the magnificent volcanic remnant dominates the three cirques of Mafate, Salazie and Cilaos.
The mountain is normally clearly visible early in the morning (before the mist rolls in) from either Hell-Bourg or Cilaos (both accessible by road).
Maison de la Montagne de la Reunion provides a specialist and comprehensive information and gite/hut booking service covering hiking routes all over Reunion.
The summit is accessible on foot either from Hell-Bourg, along the ‘Plateau de Belouve’ trail, or from Cilaos via the ‘Matarum’ trail, commencing from Bras Sec.
