When you visit the waterfall, go and read the description on the blue boards. One of these explain the volcanic layers behind the waterfall and the age of the layers, which was very interesting.

Connected to the coloured earth in payment. Two viewing points, one higher up the mountain but only walking distance.

Head here as part of a tour of the area - and go up the steps to the top viewing platform if you at all can rather than the one in the car park, the view is more spectacular.

Quite a high waterfall. I have seen quite a few waterfalls in my time, but this was lovely if you are in the area.

well the twin waterfall is part of the coloured earth sight, and it is a decent view and a oppurtunity to click pictures, but it is nothing when u think of niagara falls and ofcourse the rhinefalls. go there only if u r insistent on seeing everything in mauritius
