Nice view

Water fall is viewed from a distance at a view point. The view is breath taking. Surrounded by beautiful forest. It's awesome.

We went to the waterfall as part of an island tour. Well worth the stop, the waterfall is beautiful and the national park is also lovely. Probably wouldn't take the time to just go and see it on its own but as part of an island tour it is worth it.

This was a lovely waterfall to see form the viewpoint. A lot of visitors that were on taxi tours didn;t seem to bother walking up the small flight of steps to see it from a higher viewpoint - which was well worth the short climb in my opinion. The roads were fine - all around chamerel had obviously been recently... More

We get there on our way to see the 7 coloured earth, i only see the waterfall from a viewpoint but from there is also nice to see, there are 2 viewpoint, one is not far from the car park, and the 2nd one will have to walk up a bit where we can see clearly of the waterfall.

A short distance after the entrance (200MR pp) is a small car park and viewing platform for the falls. A very pretty waterfall, with a short information board providing a short history of the falls. A small climb - about 400m - rewards you with an even better view.

Included as part of our day trip. Nothing spectacular but you'll see wild monkeys and huge fruit bats. Nice to see as part of a day trip but not on its own.

A short walk from the car park and you are presented with a spectacular view of the highest waterfall in Mauritius. As high as the Statue of liberty apparently.

The Chamarel waterfall was one of the first stops we did with our driver. We went early in the morning so we were the only ones around. Most organized tours take the other way around so deal reach the waterfall around noon or in the afternoon. If you go early you'll have the place to yourself. The waterfall itself is... More

Although you are a long way off, viewing the falls from 2 options of viewing platforms it is still worth the visit. There was enough water in the falls to make them an impressive sight.
