Trou aux Cerfs, Mauritius

(1.7/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Long drive through Curepipe and too many tourists, which rather disturbing when shooting. Here the buses of the tours around the island every minute, even at tropical showers land! Views of the individual lava mountains spectacular.

  • Very nice place to visit, you get a nice view of the dormant volcano, also nice place to go for a walk or run even with young children as the place is barred from motor vehicles.  more »
