Ti Tou Gorge, Trafalgar Falls & Emerald Pool
Drive through the capital city Roseau to the Botanical Gardens and up the lush and verdant Roseau Valley. There will be stops at scenic locations until we reach the village of Laudat. From Laudat we take a 15 minute walk to the Ti Tou Gorge which is one of the most unique places on the island.
The name Ti Tou Gorge is Creole and means ‘Little Throat Hole’
Literally we will swim up the ‘throat’ of a mountain to a waterfall located inside the gorge. This gorge was formed many thousands of years ago and is fed by the Freshwater Lake. The formation of the rock walls on either side, through which we swim are intricate and breathtaking, this place is truly one of the wonders of Dominica.
