Altitude 3070 m

- Reunion island -



The Piton des neiges is the top of Reunion island featuring 3070m altitude. Born following volcanic activities, the ground is mainly composed of volcanic rocks. Rare vegetation found here a way to live on its side helped by nature which gives a lot of rain here. The best moment to be @ the summit is for sure the moment when the sun is rising. The view on the Reunion island is then fantastic...
