Today you will go up to 2,200 m in one of the most spectacular places in the world! Enjoy the changing scenery: charming villages, acacia and tamarind forests and steep cliffs at the magical viewpoint of Maido, which overlooks the Mafate Cauldron and 9,000 acres of pristine wilderness. There are only 700 inhabitants in the entire cauldron, spread over 15 small villages. With more than 1000 km of hiking trails, Mafate is a paradise for hiking and nature enthusiasts.
