How to Get There
Morne Trois Pitons National Park is located in the center of Dominica, about 7 miles (11 kilometers) from the capital of Roseau. Expect about 25 minutes on the road. The most convenient way to reach the park is via the village of Laudat, which is the gateway to the park. From here, take the aerial rainforest tram that travels over the rainforest canopy.
When to Get There
The park is open daily year-round. To beat the crowds and have the most time to explore, start your visit early in the morning. Peak tourist season in Dominica starts from December and lasts through May. Try to avoid visiting the island during the rainy season, from June to November since heavy rainfall and even hurricanes are the norm, especially in September and October.
Valley of Desolation One of the major attractions of the Morne Trois National Park, the otherworldly Valley of Desolation stands in sharp contrast with the lush rainforest. Covered in lichen and moss, this volcanic valley is dotted with gushing hot springs, small geysers, and bubbling mud pits.
