“Beautiful views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The crater offers beautiful views of the Plaines Wilhelms. Watch out for rainy days though which are frequent in Curepipe. The view is then often obstructed with clouds or mist.

“Best for enjoying the sunset and jogging!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Amazing place to go for a jog or sit on the bench to enjoy the sunset. If you enjoy neither, you will still enjoy the bird's eye view of the city and the mountain ranges.

“A hole in the ground”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Just a large crater with water and algae in it. not worth a diversion, and it took our driver some time to get through the back streets to reach it

“A scenic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

It is a very nice place, but you should rather move in group as it is very too much quiet. But one thing is sure is that you will breathe fresh air.

“Just a crater !!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Expected to see inside a crater but it looks more like a valley with a lot of vegetation around with a green algae covered pond in the centre. The neighbourhood is awesome though ...many beautiful houses around the area .
