Mountain Hiking in Mauritius

    Newer Older

    Picture taken on the summit of Corps de Garde mountain, central Mauritius, towards Tamarin Bay.

    I have published the GPS track logs for the hiking routes which I undertook during my stay in Mauritius in February 2008.

    So I hope the routes provided will be a good incentive for aspiring hikers to get off the beach and into the vegetation when they are in Mauritius.


    Good luck, and I look forward to seeing your pictures on Flickr.

      Very nice composure. Looks like an advertising for shoes/GPS device. Very well done :)

      Excellent image and beautiful composition. Great Idea, but not any more as my last hiking in Midland cost me one knee. Well done my friend.

      just A

      Cool stuff rubared!!!
      I was waiting for something like this for ages!!!

      Just a question: Those maps you use on your Garmin Device, are they compatible with Windows Mobile Devices?
      Cause I've got a Pocket PC with GPS built it. If it works, I wont have to get a Garmin.

      Thanks a lot for the GPX log.
      Good job!!!

      Rishi The Mauritius map I use are produced by Garmap, and as far as I can tell, they make maps for Garmin devices only.
      There are other tools which can probably create maps for your Windows Mobile/Pocket PC, for example, GPSMapEdit. But this is all speculation as I don't own a Windows Mobile.
      Saying that, the maps are only strictly required if you want to do routing, if you are just interested in the hiking routes, there is bound to be software available to display the tracks on your device. If you take your hiking seriously, then a handheld Garmin is probably the ideal solution as there is lots of third party support for creating your own maps including topo maps for anywhere in the world from freely available data.

      Sorry couldn't be of any more help.

      This is a wonderful shot! I'm trying to put together a PowerPoint presentation with a theme of Expeditions, which is for a small group of people and will only be used once, most probably. This image would be ideal ... could I have your permission to use it, please? Thanks
