Fodor's Expert Review Les Chutes du Carbet

Basse-Terre Waterfall

You can reach the first two of the Carbet Falls (the first drops from 65 feet, the second from 360 feet) via a long, steep, marked trail from the village of Habituée. The third and highest waterfall (drops from 410 feet) has been closed since 2008 due to a landslide at the site. On the way up the trail, you pass Grand Étang (Great Pond), a volcanic lake surrounded by interesting plant life. For those who are fans of The Walking Dead, there's also the curiously named Étang Zombi, a pond believed to house evil spirits. If there have been heavy rains, don't even think about going here!
