At the heart of one of the most beautiful places of the island, Takamaka is a technical and exposed course that will require a good knowledge of the activity.

This canyon is divided into to parts : the first part is full of verticalities (75m, 120m and the fabulous 70m in the « Mini Trou de Fer »), and a second part that is very aquatic. There are many water movements which means you need to be a good swimmer.

You must have done other canyons before, like Trou Blanc and Fleur Jaune Integral.
