Hiking the Cryptomeria forest in Reunion Island

Drive slowly on the forest road n68, early in the morning the sun is in front of you and even with good sunglass, the visibility is very low. Cryptomeria trees were introduced in La Reunion Island in the 19th century to be used for construction and wood for furniture. On the road you could encounter wood cutting machines and loggers, so depart early and take your time driving through the forest.
