The most magical tropical forest

Welcome to the kingdom of tamarind in the highlands!

Famous for its tamarinds and its exceptional, surprising and wide flora with various hiking paths well-kept and marked out.

A moist forest in altitude, Bélouve is perched on a plateau 1,300m above sea level in the East of Reunion Island, offering spectacular views of the greenest cirque of the island.

The hike is accessible to everyone including children and seniors leading the way to a breathtaking viewpoint over « Trou de Fer » and its endless waterfalls.

Canyon adventure at Trou Blanc

A combination of potholing, hiking, climbing, mountaineering, and swimming in white water rapids in a beautiful natural and breathtaking environment.

Doubtless, canyoning at Trou Blanc is the funniest trip of the island!

A very aquatic canyon with a lot of waterslides in an amazing mineral landscape.


The tallest waterfall of Reunion Island

Located North of the Forest of Bélouve separating Salazie and Bras-Panon, the « Trou de Fer » is more easily accessible by « La route des Plaines » and the forest / Gîte of Bélouve. 

Apart from being a confirmed canyoning practitioner to enjoy the many waterfalls, the « Trou de Fer » can be seen from the panoramic viewpoint or by helicopter when flying over this amazing site.

For hiking enthusiasts, a roundtrip of 3 hours approximately will provide an exceptional experience to the « Trou de Fer » amidst a beautiful Primary Forest, that words cannot describe.

(« The Bride’s Veil » waterfall)

« The Bride’s Veil » waterfall is composed of multiple water streams along the mountains offering one of the most incredible show, worth visiting. It owes its name to the vaporous effect due to significant flow of water.


Falling 640 m, the « Cascade Blanche » is the third highest waterfall of France. Lying near the entrance of the Cirque of Salazie, this astonishing waterfall is not very wide but quite impressive owing to its height. The mountainous landscape around this waterfall is spectacular.
