Trou aux Cerfs, Mauritius

Volcano · Historic Walking Area
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.

  • The travel agents highlight this place like it's one of 7 wonders of the world. Overhyped, you wouldn't appreciate the place unless you are fascinated by volcanoes. The volcano looks like a small pond , lush greenery surrounds the place .
