Trou aux Cerfs information
Lonely Planet review
About 1km west of central Curepipe, the Trou aux Cerfs is an extinct volcanic crater some 100m deep and 1km in circumference. The bowl is heavily wooded and from the road around the rim – a favourite spot for joggers and walkers – you get lovely views of the plateau. There are benches for rest and reflection, and a radar station for keeping an electronic eye on cyclone activity.
