Luxuriant natural tropical forest blends with scenic volcanic features of great scientific interest in this national park centred on the 1,342-m-high volcano known as Morne Trois Pitons. With its precipitous slopes and deeply incised valleys, 50 fumaroles, hot springs, three freshwater lakes, a 'boiling lake' and five volcanoes, located on the park's nearly 7,000 ha, together with the richest biodiversity in the Lesser Antilles, Morne Trois Pitons National Park presents a rare combination of natural features of World Heritage value.

Morne Trois Pitons National Park

Hot springs, three freshwater lakes, a “boiling lake” and five volcanoes can be found heating up Morne Trois Pitons National Park. The fascinating boiling lake is filled with bubbling greyish-blue water that is enveloped in a cloud of vapor. It is believed it is the only phenomena of its kind in existence. Many trails have been developed to give visitors the best views of what Morne Trois Pitons National Park has to offer.

Rich in biodiversity, the park has six abundant vegetation zones and homes for animals such as the Agouti, a tailless forest rodent with dark fur and pink ears. The only mammals indigenous to Dominica are bats and there are several varieties that are a common place sight in packs at dusk. At least 80 different types of birds have also been spotted within the park.
