Begin this tour with the visit of the town of Curepipe.

Another tourist destination nearby is the Trou-aux Cerfs, a dormant crater, situated on the highest point of Curepipe, a place that attracts many. Get a complete view of Curepipe and other towns from this spot famous for its splendid view, cold fresh air and marvelous sun- sets.
Proceed with the visit of Ganga Talao, a crater lake situated in a secluded mountain area in the district of Savanne deep in the heart oа Mauritius . It is about 1800 feet above sea level. It is considered as the most sacred Hindu place in Mauritius . There is a temple dedicated to Shiva and other Gods including Hanuman, Lakshmi, and others along the Grand Bassin. During Maha Shivarati, many pilgrims in Mauritius walk bare feet from their homes to the lake.
Complete the day with La Vanille Crocodile Park, a picturesque and idyllic nature reserve extending over 3.5 hectares of luxuriant greenery. Follow the nature walk, surrounded by beautiful palms, banana plants and giant bamboo, and you will imagine that you are in a tropical rainforest. Come face to face with huge Nile crocodiles and walk through the herds of giant Aldabra tortoises. Impressive collection of insects including beautiful butterflies is waiting for you after the visit to the crocodile farm.
Gris Gris, the southern end of the island, is quite different from the other open water areas with its strong currents crashing against sheer cliffs making it a dramatic but wonderful view.
