This is only national park in Mauritius,and is inSW of island.
We bussed down with GG,got maps from park office,and set off thru park.we had a steep climb up a muddy slippery trail,to  this little shelter,all to ourselves,for lunch,and cloudy views over black river and coast.
Then along high ridge with waterfalls,and some nice views.
At end od walk,we got a long lift to convenient bus station,then back to boats
Getting fitter.
