We enjoyed the drive up to see the waterfall. Our kids had not seen a waterfall before and thought it was very cool. There are a couple of different vantage points and as we had arrived relatively early in the morning - 9ish - there were very few people around and we got to enjoy it by ourselves. On the... More

Saw the waterfowl in July. It is an ok place but not spectacular. The roads getting there were quite tough and the park closed at 5pm so time your arrival with a view to seeing this and the 7 colour earth which shares the attraction.

The Chamarel waterfall is situated in Chamarel village, South coast. It is a beautiful sight and give you so much peace to just keep looking at it. We visited when it was monsoons so the beauty was just ten fold more with the greeenery around. Soothing to your mind and body

This was one of various attractions visited during a day out with a tour guide. Time well spend, although we encountered some rain we had a great time.

Spectacular waterfall with a lot of information available. Sadly the road conditions are atrocious, if you're driving a vehicle with high ground clearance is essential.

This is a must do for all tourists. So much beauty and definitely breathe taking!! A suggestion would be to book an entire tour, so that you are able to view many other places near and around. There are some really good tour companies, so book with them directly. We got a really good package with Connections, a tour company.
