|Going there :
|| Flight plan : The simplest way is to set to the right after the déco. Go past the hill then follow the chain, always to the right. Count the crests under your feet, until the fourth, if you are on a rather high, you can see Cilaos cirque and Piton des neiges to the right (a great moment !). There, have a small look below : you get to the fifth crest, a littel lower is Entre-deux village, stright ahead Saint-Etienne river which runs out of Cilaos cirque.
Quarter turn to the left, follow the crest up to the cisterns. From there, you can see the football field landing ground.
