The view over the valleys or gorges is really majestic. I suspect that if you were to wake up or visit that area early in the morning, you would very much feel at peace with the world.

Visited the Gorge Viewpoint as part of a bus tour. It was a bit misty when we visited but we still saw the highest peak on Mauritius when the mist cleared. There are some souvenir stalls set up next to the car park.
