Trou aux Cerfs, Mauritius

(1.7/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Amazing views of the island and so many different species of trees not to mention the long walks. Sunsets are amazing as well. A must to visit and witness in person.
