Le Pouce is the third highest mountain in Mauritius. It is located in the North West of Mauritius between Pieter Both and the Signal mountain. It has a peak of 812m and as Charles Darwin said, “a mountain so called from a thumb-like projection.” Once at the top, you will have a 360-degree panoramic view. The sight of the northern part of the island especially is amazing. It is a relatively easy mountain to hike.
