Trou aux Cerfs

Trou aux Cerfs (also known as Murr’s Volcano) is a dormant volcano with a well-defined cone and crater. It is 605 m (1,985 ft) high and located in CurepipeMauritius. The crater has been alternately described as 300[1] and 350 meters in diameter,[2] and is 80 meters deep.[2]

The crater was formed less than 2 million years ago in the second phase of volcanic activity that created Mauritius.[3]

According to experts, the volcano is currently dormant but could become active at any time within the next thousand years.[citation needed]

The crater is only accessible down a steep embankment which is considered dangerous. Water and silt have clogged the crater, making it even less accessible.
