  A view on the tea fields (on the left)
by Muya

After leaving the tea factory, the road goes deeper into the Morne Seychellois and makes you feel you're in the jungle. Leave the road when you see the sign indicating La Mission, and follow the path. This place is full of atmosphere... really impressive. The mission was build in 1876 and was a boarding school for liberated slave children. Ruins can still be seen beneath the massive dragon blood trees lane. Follow that lane until you reach the view point, where another magnificent view of ocean, green vegetation and tea fields catches your eyes...

Directions: Just below the summit of Sans Soucis
