Valley of Desolation, Morne Trois Pitons National Park

(4.8/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Contemplate the wondrous power of nature at Valley of Desolation, a valley of hot springs, steam vents, and fumeroles. Observe vapors rising from the ground and smell sulphur in the air in the spectacular setting. You can expect to be out for about 6 hours on the long hike, assuming you take it at an easy pace. Guides are available, but not essential, as the trail is easy to follow. Make sure you bring plenty of water and sunscreen, and beware of the uncertified guides at the start of the trail. For an easy and entertaining meal, consider bringing along some eggs to boil in the springs. Put Valley of Desolation at the forefront of your travel plans using our Morne Trois Pitons National Park trip itinerary planner.

  • this was an awesome hike. diverse landscape and unique environment due to geo thermal activity. You can boil and egg in some of the hot pots. Make sure you take a spoon to dip it out when it's cooked....  more »
  • On the way to BLake (6 h AR), after 2:30 to go, you will meet the Valley of Desolation. Volcanic site with resurgences, and sometimes sulfur geysers. All minerals appear on the fringe of the Valley bed: ochres, orange, yellow, grey, blue. It is just beautiful and dangerous. Can be done without a guide.
