The waterfall is part of the double attraction with 7 coloured earth. The waterfall is quite nice,and wasn't too busy when we visited. I guarantee you will stay at the pretty waterfall longer than you will at the 7 coloured earth (boring). Not too expensive to get in, so proably worth seeing, but do not start out with high expectations.... More

The waterfall is on the way to 7 coloured earth attraction and since it falls in the same estate, you can stop for a few mins.

I've seen a few waterfalls before and this one was very small and nothing breath-taking. Not worth the drive or the entrance fee.

Visited this waterfall as part of a trip organised by Mauritours. The viewpoint in the photo is reached by climbing up some steps from the road (or a reasonable gradient). Pretty waterfall but perhaps more spectacular in rainy season (summer).

Visited this as part of a tour, Chamarel Waterfall was much more spectacular than we expected. The sheer size of it was something special, it was not busy when we went so were able to really take it all in. Highly recommend visiting. It's within the same area as 7 coloured earths.

We went there on our south trip. This is located under private property, very near to 7 colored earth. the view of waterfall is amazing, though you can only enjoy it from a distance.

A beautiful view of the falls, so peaceful we could sit for hours watching and listening to the water and taking pictures.

A very nice experience to see the waterfall in the middle of nature. There is a lot of people almost all the time so it can be tricky to have a picture, but nice in any other aspect.
