Morne Trois Pitons National Park

Established in 1975, Morne Trios Pitons National Park was the first of Dominica's officially established national parks. Later, in 1998, UNESCO recognized this spot as a World Heritage Spot. Whatever its classification, the expansive area of land is typified by its impressive peaks and lush landscaping.

Morne Trios Pitons National Park is a tropical forest with volcanic features including deep valleys, furnaroles, hot springs, lakes, and even five separate volcanoes.

There are numerous natural sites to visit within the park including the Boiling Lake and Valley of Desolation, Boeri Lake, Titou George, Emerald Pool, Middleham Falls, and Trafalgar Falls.
