one of the sights to vista in Mauritius. These falls fall a fair distance in to the gorge below. Make sure you visit the top viewpoint to see the water falling from two different heights

It was really worth driving out there. Amazing view of the waterfall. Its drop is as high as the statue of Liberty. Two viewing decks with breathtaking views.

We drove 4 hours (round trip) from the north of the island to get to Chamarel. The waterfall and 7 coloured earth are beautiful to see however it only takes 1 hour to get around.

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.
