Trou aux Cerfs, Mauritius

3.0
#2 of 17 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. Using our custom trip planner, Floreal attractions like Trou aux Cerfs can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Trou aux Cerfs is a dead crater between Floreal and Curepipe with a wonderful panoramic view. Nice historical place, ideal for an early morning or afternoon walk or jogging.  more »
  • Cute but nothing more, anyway to see if you do the tour of the South of the island. Parking and free business. Two photos and sharing ...

  • See because the rest of the volcano on the island. Small view of the hole and Ballad of 1.7 km around this one up offering a beautiful panorama on the surrounding area. Nothing special, just a quick detour!
