Canyon of Fleur Jaune Integral Version: Level2 / Level3:
The Integral Version is longer (around 8h), with longer walks during and after the canyon. And you absolutely need to be confortable with a 93m rappel !
The integral version of fleur jaune is longer. After the classical version, you will walk for around 1h in the canyon to reach the « salle à manger », a magnificent viewpoint point on the circus and on the canyon of bras rouge. From there you start the descent on the « chapelle », a real geological Wonder. First there is a 35m rappel then a 94m, totally into the void. The day ends with a 1h30 walk back to Cilaos.
