Trou aux Cerfs, Mauritius

3.1
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, Mauritius attractions like Trou aux Cerfs can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • You can give it a miss if you are in a rush. I can’t say it is very impressive. I would suggest that you go directly to the waterfall place because it’s right next to the 7 Coloured Earth.  more »
  • Went to see this crater as the first stop of our South Mauritius tour. It was a lovely place. You can walk aroundf this crater and soak in the beautiful breeze which is very freshening  more »

  • Best at night where you can sit and gaze at the stars. But yes good view point to see the crater and its even possible to go near the crater, down.
  • This is a volcanic crater with a lake in the middle. The road has been built right till the top, so one can directly drive to the crater and enjoy the scenary from the mountain top. Couple of best things to enjoy here are the scenic views of the surroundings and the cool breeze/wind at the top. Majority of the crater is filled with trees but the lake in the middle is good to look at.
