#2 of 9 in Things to do in Morne Trois Pitons National Park
Situated among a rainforest in the mountains sits Boiling Lake, the second-largest hot lake in the world. The lake. which measures about 63 m (200 ft) across and has a sweltering temperature of 82 °C (180 °F), bubbles with a greyish-blue color and constantly fills the air with a cloud of vapor. Viewing the lake requires a tough-but-rewarding trek through the steep hills of the dense rainforest. Expect a 13 km (8 mi) trip with muddy trails and stream crossings; locals recommend hiring a guide to help you over the narrow trail. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear.

    Incredible discoveries, with the Valley of desolation, its fumaroles and springs bubbling after a long climb to the top of Mount Watt (1200 m) in the rainforest and a dizzying descent, then the Boiling Lake highlight, bathed by clouds of sulphur... but very physical rando, count 6 to 7 h of hiking, and formally cancelled in children (babies carried by their parents or young children) because passages can be dangerous. to be done preferably with a guide
