Morne Trois Pitons - Dominica

Dominica was one of the countries Lídia visited a few weeks ago. This is my 1st card from there and at the same time a card from a new Unesco site, the only one in this country, Morne Trois Pitons National Park. This park is a Unesco WHS since 1997.

Luxuriant natural tropical forest blends with scenic volcanic features of great scientific interest in this national park centred on the 1,342-m-high volcano known as Morne Trois Pitons. With its precipitous slopes and deeply incised valleys, 50 fumaroles, hot springs, three freshwater lakes, a 'boiling lake' and five volcanoes, located on the park's nearly 7,000 ha, together with the richest biodiversity in the Lesser Antilles, Morne Trois Pitons National Park presents a rare combination of natural features of World Heritage value. - in:
