Trou aux Cerfs, Mauritius

1.8
#4 of 14 in Historic Sites in Mauritius
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.

    Excellent crater covered in vegetation. Where can you take great pictures to remember the trip.

    Do only if it passes into the sector, worth not to detour specially for this place. Nice, not really impressive nor extraordinary.

    Stage included with the southern Tour and is completely free. In addition to seeing the usual beautiful natural landscape, you can photograph the dormant volcano for many years in which to format a small pond.
