There are two legends surrounding the Slave Route Mountain. One is that the slaves jumped and fell to their deaths to escape slavery. And the other says that when the British passed the Anti-Slavery Act in 1834, a group of officials were headed to the slaves with the news. But the slaves lived in fear of being recaptured and therefore jumped to escape. Either way, this monument deserves regard with a moment of contemplation and silence. So do put it in your itinerary of things to do in Mauritius.
