Morne Trois Pitons National Park is more than just the spectacular three-peak mountain from which it gets its name. Within the park's boundaries, which take up about 10 percent of the island, there are four types of forests, the world's second largest boiling lake, a vast valley filled with gaseous bubbling fumaroles, and a 300-foot-high (91-meter-high) waterfall.
