Beautiful Waterfalls

While going for Chamarel 7 coloured earth had not expected to see a beautiful waterfall which was very refreshing to see. Specially young honeymoon couples enjoyed taking snaps.

A lovely water fall in very different part of the island. Good viewing area up some steepish steps. Good to see this part of the island.

Even though it's not very big fall it's still very beautiful and worth of seeing because of the surrounding nature. Don't miss this if you are going to Chamarel Coloured Earth.

Visited Chamarel yesterday and was left spellbound by the beauty of the100 m long cascade of falling waters. There are two levels from which you can see the waterfalls. The second one is reachable after climbing 20-30 easy steps and both levels provide excellent views. Definitely a must visit place in Mauritius. Very nominal fee of MR 200 to see... More

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
