Sunrise seen from Piton des Neiges (3069 m (10069 ft)), Réunion

During our stay on Réunion we also hiked to the summit of Piton des Neiges which is the highest point on Réunion and also the highest point in the Indian Ocean. It's possible to do the trail as a two-day hike with an overnight stay at the Gîte de la Caverne Dufour and to do the summit in the very early morning hours. We started at 03:00 AM at the Gîte to be on time at the summit for the sunrise. Together with some other people we were on the summit to wait for the sunrise. Finally we had this beautiful view at the sunrise and it was really a magic moment to see it.
