留尼旺島馬法特冰斗的雨林

RISING OUT OF the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar, Réunion Island is a continent and an ocean away from France – the country that put it on the map in the 17th century as a stopover on its East Indies trade routes. Today, it’s a stopover for its natural beauty: white-sand beaches and wild landscapes like Cirque de Mafate. The only way in – or out – of this mountainous, rainforested caldera is via helicopter or trekking through its valleys, rivers and waterfalls.
