Carbet Falls - GUADELOUPE
Another major landmark from Guadeloupe - Les chutes du Carbet (Carbet Falls), a series of waterfalls on the Carbet River. According to my sister in law, it's a awesome place for trekking with astonishing surprises in every corner of the path; the downside is the humidity (close to 100%). Thanks again Belita and Eric - with all this postcards I now know a little bit more about that islands and feel my envy decrease a little. This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
Carbet Falls is a series of waterfalls on the Carbet River in Guadeloupe, an overseas department of France located in the Leeward Islands of the eastern Caribbean region. Its three cascades are set amid the tropical rainforests on the lower slopes of the volcano La Soufrière. The falls are one of the most popular visitor sites in Guadeloupe. In 1493, Christopher Columbus noted Carbet Falls in his log.
