I am not sure why I love to see water falls however I find them fascinating, and this one is no exception. it is not the biggest in the world however the setting makes it one of the prettiest. Take you camera and you will enjoy it. this was part of our south tour taxi trip.

Along a bumpy road but worth it. Take the time to walk up the short track to the lookout, the view is better from up there

I wasn't sure if this would be worth the journey - it is a rather touristy destination but i do think it was worth it. It's is a really dramatic waterfall that tumbles down into a great cleft. Do bear in mind that the water levels go up and down with the seasons. The Coloured Earths were more spectacular than... More

This waterfall is highest in Mauritius and comes on the way towards the Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth. Nothing spectacular about it. Just a place to clicks few photos.

Not much to see but you get a better view if you walk up the steps to the top. 5 or 10 minutes is all you need to see it all.

100 metre waterfall, but once you've been to the Black River George National Park this becomes just another waterfall.

Magnificent waterfall and 7 coloured earth and giant tortoises - all set in beautiful scenery. We went on sub-scooter under the ocean accompanied by divers. The fish and coral were brilliant.

By world standards these falls are certainly not worth a mention let alone a visit although the winding drive up to Chamarel from the coast is beautiful and the views from there are spectacular with the falls up at the top being a total anticlimax.

On our tour of the South we stopped here to see the waterfall. It's free and there was a queue of cars to get to the parking platform. We were literally there 5 minutes, time to take a photo (have your long lens, it's probably miles away from the viewing ledge). There a bit of information on height etc. but... More

A visit here if combined with a visit to the South is worth it ....but a special visit only for the waterfall may not be the best idea,i considering that Mauritius with its beaches has so much to offer..For anyone who has travelled a bit , this waterfall though nice to see ,may be nothing spectacular . A quick detour... More
