Trou aux Cerfs, Mauritius
(1.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Visit Trou aux Cerfs to see the crater of the dormant volcano and views across the island. Standing 605 m (1,985 ft) above sea level, the volcano enjoys a thick covering of vegetation, offering good routes for nature walks. The view from the top affords an extensive panorama of the island from an atmospheric vantage point. The plants growing in the crater make it an interesting natural sight on an island that owes so much of its scenery to volcanic activity. Note that access to the crater itself is along a dangerously steep embankment, so you should not attempt to descend into it.

  • Nothing much here. There is only a dormant crater. The view of the town is good but you could get similar views at many other places. 
  • This is a dormant volcano. There is so much vegetation round you can hardly see anything. You cannot walk down either. So can skip it if you are in a hurry. 
  • Place of the crater where the main attraction is not the same crater. Here comes only after view of the surroundings. Crater itself very overgrown. Us failed to even fully see the lakes at the bottom of the crater because of the big bushes
