Piton des Neiges is the highest mountain on Reunion Island. The mountain is an old, eroded volcano, situated in the geologically older north central portion of the island. Three magnificent sheer-walled cirques surround the mountain, and its summit is often capped in snow. Many trails are maintained throughout the area, and the summit is a walk-up.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/456747pdn.jpg>
