  12. 12. Dominica Interesting places to visit: Boiling Lake: One of the largest of its kind, it's reached after a hard 3-4 hour hike through the forest, crossing over streams and ridges. But if perchance you can't make it, at least go as far as the Valley of Desolation, which is a sulphur spring and geyser park in it's own right. Ti Tou Gorge: A crevice in which hot and cold streams intermingle, a swim in these crystal clean waters leads to a spectacular view of a waterfall. Located after a short stroll from Laudat, at the start of the Boiling Lake Trail. It's also the perfect place to wash away the mud after the Boiling Lake hike! Chaudiere: This spot in the north-east of the island has it all - a delightful walk in the rainforest culminating in an awesome river pool.
