Morne Trois Pitons National Park

© noheadimg

The Morne Trois Pitons National Park covers some 17,000 acres (6880 hectares) of mountainous volcanic terrain in the southern part of Dominica. It includes many of the country's most important wilderness sites and consists mostly of primordial rainforest, thick jungle in the valleys and cloud forest on the upper slopes of the 1389 m (4550 feet) high Morne Trois Pitons itself.

At the park's northeastern tip is Emerald Pool. The small basin is surrounded by lush vegetation and sits at the foot of a nice waterfall. You can get there via the road that runs between Canefield and Castle Bruce. The pool is 5 minutes walking off the road.

One of the park's most interesting features is 63 m (207 feet) wide Boiling Lake, the world's second-largest actively boiling lake. The eerie looking lake sits in a deep basin and has grayish colored water. It is thought that the lake is a flooded fumarole that is allowing hot gases to vent from the molten lava below. The gases bubble up continuously and the lake is veiled in steam. Treks to Boiling Lake are available.
