Trou aux Cerfs, Floreal

#4 of 19 in Historic Sites in 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.

  • Trou aux Cerfs – a short visit, it was nice, and can easily be combined with other sights. Special view, 10 minutes is enough, unless you want to walk around on the edge. Used by locals for jogging....  more »
  • Visited this dormant Crater in the morning, the view was amazing, there was dense forests on the sides of the volcano. Saw people coming here for a walk/jogging, A good place for clicking pictures...  more »
  • Best place to go for fresh air or a run, jog or walk.
  • 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 .
