Grand Bassin

Nature & Scenery::Grand Bassin.  

Grand Bassin is a crater-lake situated deep in the heart of Mauritius. Being about 1800 feet above sea level, it is considered as a sacred lake and the most sacred Hindu place in Mauritius, as it is said that the water inside the crater communicates with the waters of the holy Ganges in India.  Its big surface area, combined with the surrounding hills and forests make it an interesting filming location.
