Cirque de Mafate


Morning view from the summit area of Le Grand Bénare towards north into the Cirque de Mafate with the village of La Nouvelle in the right centre of the image. There are no roads developing the villages in the Cirque de Mafate, only some trails. Le Grand Bord is seen on the left side, the clouds moving in from the right side reflect the uplift of the air masses driven against the northeastern slopes of the island by the tradewinds.
