Description

The Piton de la Fournaise is one of the most active volcanoes on Earth, as it usually erupts more than once every given year. Situated within RĂ©union National Park and within the World Heritage Site that goes with it, it is 2621 m high.

Half-Day Run: The trailhead to the summit is situated at the Pas de Bellecombe, that one reaches through a forest road from the Plaine des Cafres. The trail goes down into the caldeira, passes a small volcanic cone called Formica Leo and starts climbing the volcanic giant.
