As in many parts of the world features like this are promoted as tourist attractions. Though interesting this attraction could prove disappointing if a considerable time was spent travelling to view. The feature was well maintained and the surrounding grounds well landscaped.

The view is amazing, great place to visit, few stairs to claim to get better view. But you also can see it from street level.

It really is beautiful to see but you cannot get very close to the waterfall, you can see it from a distance and thats about it.

Must see when you visit 7-coloured earth. Impressive with the jungle around, very high waterfall, beautiful surroundings. Can observe the birds nesting around.

This is definitely a one of a kind place. The waterfall is as high as the Statue of Liberty, apparently. Kids and adults will be awed by the wonder of nature that this place is. The 7 coloured earth nearby is amazing as well.

I was trying to get a shared/group excursion, but ended up with a private trip. Anyhow, the viewing point I was taken to is nice, but a bit far to get the real feel of the hight/size of the waterfall. Still thumbs up, even though...More

By no means the biggest or most spectacular waterfall that you might see, but there is a good, if somewhat distant view and it is generally all very beautiful.

Absolutely stunning views, historical plaques around the sight giving information of the history of the waterfall. Visited with retired in-laws and 2 children aged 12 and 10 they were all kept interested. The area was kept clean and tidy and offered beautiful views.

This visit you can do just before you visit 7 colors Earth, the ticket is for both attractions and it worths. This waterfall has been created in 2 different periods of volcano activity.

Beautiful waterfall, although does not have a lot of water flowing through it and it's not an enormous waterfall that might be expected. But it is nice non the less and worth seeing if you are a tourist in Mauritius. Ok for a quick stop.

Hiya! I don't think that both these activities would take a whole day, but if you include travel from flic en flac then maybe it maybe a half day tour. Most of the sites which are on tripadvisor are in the south. Tour... More
