The village of Laudat is a main gateway to the Unesco-protected Morne Trois Pitons National Park, an evocative pastiche of lakes, fumaroles, volcanoes, waterfalls, hot springs and dense forest. It comprises five vegetation zones, mainly secondary rainforest but reaching up to cloud forest at the highest elevations.
Established in 1975, it stretches across 17,000 acres surrounding the eponymous 4672ft-high three-peaked dormant volcano. Other volcanoes within the park are Morne Micotrin, Morne Watt and Morne Anglais.
The park has been a Unesco World Heritage site since 1997.
