Jaro's bike ride to Le Maido......


The loooong ride to Le Maido:  Route Forestiere des Tamarins, to a lookout at 2205m altitude and lots of clouds.  View from route D3 near Trois Bassins.


Clouds blasting up from far below.  The lookout is on the rim of the Cirque de Mafate - the north-west one of the three giant volcanic calderas (the other two being Salazie and Cilaos). 

 
They got this one right.... 
 

Fantastic, magical forest....


Like riding a bike through a botanical greenhouse.


Seems to be a forest of Cryptomerias of some kind.....with lots of picnic areas around...
Higher up, no more picnic areas, just a road through the wilderness.
