Very Outstanding viewpoint on the Cilaos Village. Very peaceful and calm. The legend is also not an ordinary one, was wondering if this really did work at that time. And if natives still practice it!!!

We walked there, it as a nice walk not too hard. Though it is not a loop but same way coming back. The view from there is beautiful but once again, go there EARLY

Roche Merveilleuse is nice if you want to have a picknick or for a walk with your family. Not difficult to walk and some nice spots. On the track you will find many shields with explanation of trees etc...

This is an easily accessed viewpoint worth seeing when visiting Cilaos. It's good to associate it with one of the many hikes in the area which are available for all levels

Tremendous road journey up to this place with amazing hairpin bends, then a short walk up steps to the viewing platform. Fabulous view of cirque and Cilaos nestling beneath. Go first thing in morning as clouds tend to gather on mountains by noon.
