How to Get There
Boiling Lake is located within Dominica’s extensive Morne Trois Pitons National Park, which covers the bottom half of the island. The hike to the lake leaves from the main access town of Laudat, or from Ti Tou Gorge, which is also in the park. The lake may only be accessed on a 3-4 hour guided trek.
When to Get There
The Morne Trois Pitons National Park is open daily year-round. The best time to visit Boiling Lake is from March to May during the dry season. Make your best effort to make the trek on a clear and dry day as rains may make the trek treacherous or impassable.
