    Piton des Neiges - Summit of Ocean Indian

    Piton des Neiges Elevation (feet): 10700

    Elevation (meters): 3070

    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.

    I don't understand why it's called the summit of the Indian Ocean
    Remember what movie these are from? I bet you don't!
