HISTORY AND NAMES
- Trou de Fer, Cascades de is the Unofficial name of this waterfall
The name "Trou de Fer" means "Iron Hole". It's an apt and descriptive name.
This is one of the most unique waterfalls we've seen. Many Hawaiian waterfalls stream down an amphitheater, but rarely do we see a multitiered formation of this intricacy. The island of Réunion has many interesting waterfalls, this being perhaps the most interesting.
Location and directions
From Hell-Bourg, leave southeast on the road D55. The road climbs steeply to the Forêt de Bélouve (Forest of Bélouve). From here you'll walk along the Chemin de Trou de Fer for about 3.3 miles (5.3 km) to a viewpoint of the 2nd tier. If you want a bird's eye view, you'll need to charter a helicopter or airplane.

The average visitor only has one or two viewpoints available. By far, the most impressive photographs we've seen come from the devotées of canyoneering, as adventure sport with the purpose pf exploring canyons. This often involves rapelling, hiking, wading, and rock climbing. The nature of this sport is such that encounters with waterfalls are quite frequent. In short, you can get fantastic photographs of this waterfall if you are dangling from a rope or flying overhead in an airplane or helicopter. In either case, the scene is spectacular.
