The island is of volcanic origin, formed through volcanic activityinitiated by deeply settled “hot spot” inside the Earth’s mantle. It wasformed within the last 2,000,000 years from lava effusions whose volume is upto now nearly 75,000 km3. Only 3% of its volume is emergent and the totalheight from the sea floor is 6,500 m. The island is about 40 km in width withabout 800,000 inhabitants. The capital city is St Denis. The nature of theisland is impressive: active volcano, mountains above 3,000 m in height anddeep canyon, frequently exceeding 2,000 m in depth.
