My friend Dwayne and I both did the trail and it was great. From the beginning to the end. Just imagine yourselves walking through the rainforest and being cheered on by the acoustic sounds of the wildlife and the sound of the rivers rushing against the stones. And as we descend to the valley of desolation which smells like a... More

We did the 7-hour hike to Boiling Lake and back. It's beautiful and has to be seen to be believed. But it's tough! Be sure you have lots of water and good hiking shoes. My family and I are good weekend hikers, but we were sore for a few days afterwards. Having said that, I'd certainly to it again! I... More

The amazing thing about this trail is how often the scenery changes: different types of forests, a stunning 360° view midway, the valley of desolation, and finally the boiling lake itself! All this is worth the 6 to 7 hours it takes to get there and back. Be warned that most of the way is arranged with staircases, which might... More

Yes its quite a tough and long hike, and unfortunately, it may rain for the entire (if not close to) time. You will get wet and muddy and even cold at some points. Bring a change of socks/clothes, plenty of water, some snacks, something to keep your camera and clothes dry, and if you have a light rainjacket that would... More

This was one of my first ever long hikes. I went with a large group of people and remember just trekking for ages. I grew up in Dominica but I was still impressed with the scenery and the trail. There is a peak about halfway there which gives you a nice 360 view of the forest surrounding. the trek through... More

We were a group of 6 doing the boiling lake trek and were set up with Nigel through our accommodation in Calibishie (I think everyone there and around there knows him so he should be easy to find!). He came and saw us the night before to discuss the trek which was nice (although he told us we had to... More

this was an awesome hike. there were many changes in scenery and the final view of the boiling lake was breathtaking. The time to make this hike is accurate. Have comfortable hiking shoes and be ready for an adventure.

Let's be straight about it: this is an arduous hike because of the steep ascents (and descents) and the length. There's a little bit of rock scrambling where you definitely would not want to miss a step. Your quads are going to burn, you're going to get wet and muddy, and it's probably going to be rainy, cold and windy... More

First boiling lake I have seen, as well as first jump off a cliff into the Titou Gorge. I would recommend a guide if not familiar with the area and would not attempt if raining hard. It will make for a very difficult day. We were lucky enough to have no rain and a mostly cloudy day. Exhausting but fantastic....
