The Brownsmountain day-tour in Suriname is a really nice way to enjoy the interior. This is an all-in tour complete with a small breakfast, snacks, fruit, guide, transportation, non-alcoholic drinks and park-fees. There is a hike towards two beautiful waterfalls and a really nice view over the professor Blommenstein reservoir. This tour is the most popular day tours in Suriname. There is a big chance to spot wildlife on the mountain while hiking. There is also a nice little bar on the top of the mountain, for those who don't want to hike and want to relax with the owner named: "Rocky". The hiker will visit the Leo and Irene-waterfalls so make sure you take your swim suite and get beautiful pictures under the waterfalls.
Your day will start at 8:30am with a pickup in a centrally located point on a small air-conditioned minivans.
At 9:30am your first stop and small breakfast (you can choose out of bread or local food) near the Suralco-powerplant, old bauxiet-mining plant. 9:45am we'll get back in the minivan to continue our ride heading Browsmountain over the Afobaka-road, while the guide explains the history of the road.
Arrival on Brownsweg (multiple village on the foot of the Brownsmountain) at 11am, the guide will tell us about these transmigration villages, and how government moved the villagers from where now the Blommenstein-reservoir is now days.
From here we start on an in-paived road of 13 kilometers towards the top of the 504 meter high Browns-mountain where we should arrive at 11:45am.
At midday we will start hiking after seeing the view over the Blommenstein-reservoir and getting something to drink and a few snacks handed out by the guide.
At 1pm we visit the first waterfall - the Leo Falls - while spotting wild life on the path towards it.
Our second waterfall visit is at 2pm - the Irene Falls (only for the people with a good health-condition).
At 3:30pm arrival again at the top, for a good earned Surinamese lunch and drinks from the local restaurant called "Rocky".
Our departure from the mountain will be at 4:15pm and we should be back at the starting point by 6pm when your tour finishes.
