Morne Trois Pitons National Park

Now that I reached 800 UNESCO sites in my collection it's even harder to get new ones. And when I think the next one won't come any time soon, a nice surprise like this one arrives

Morne Trois Pitons National Park is a World Heritage Site (since 1997) located in Dominica. This area was established as a national park by the Dominican government in July 1975, the first to be legally established in the country. The National Park is named after its highest mountain, Morne Trois Pitons, meaning mountain of three peaks. The park is a significant area of volcanic activity. Features within the part include the Valley of Desolation, a region of boiling mud ponds and small geysers; the Boiling LakeTitou Gorge, and Emerald Pool. - in: wikipedia
