The road up the location is very nice with many sightseeing points. Les plain des sables is an incredible place.

It's 24 km from the town. The first 18 km is an excellent road but the last 6 km is atrocious. The viewpoint is interesting but there are far better volcanoes (and viewpoints) in Asia, Europe and the Pacific.

That place is breath taking. There you stand in the crisp air, facing one of the most active vulcanoes in the world. You've passed an incredible plain, feeling like you're on the moon (the Plain of Sands). The Pas de Bellecombe offers a great overview...More
