The Reunion Island volcanoes are dangerous because their activity is scarce and very predictable, but of course, volcanology is still not an exact science. For peace of mind, is monitored by volcanologists DOA 24 hours. You should go to Pas-de BELLECOMBE to enjoy the view of the fireplace of this active volcano. You can walk around the crater and the nearby lunar landscape of the Plaine des Sables. Be respectful of beacon signals. It is not a trip for everyone. Cuesta get, because you can drive. Sometimes, you get exhausted. There is a volcano museum located on the road leading to the Piton de la Fournaise. The other major volcano, still higher is the Piton des Neiges, or Snow, of 3,069 meters. This one is not active. It is surrounded by three impressive amphitheatres: Cilaos circuses, Mafate and Salazie, of which we speak in the next post. Both from the top of Piton de Fournaise as Snow, the views are shocking, and you can glimpse how volcanic eruptions have shaped the island.
