Black River Gorge National Park, Chamarel Reviews
A break from everything, depending on one's pace, the whole 9 kilometres would vary between 2 to 4 hours, the longest route though is the fastest as the pathway is flat while the most challenging one is filled with sloppy and very slippery tracks which ask for timely steps and stamina. The end of the track is blessed with a running stream. A GPS and an updated map will be most welcome.
Beautiful nature: love the streams, rivers, the climbing parts. A great natural reserve. Do not forget to apply your lotions against mosquitoes, bring your swimming gear, climbing shoes, water, lunch and camera photo. please collect back any litter. Highly recommended place.
Stunning country and city. So happy to visit my homeland after 10 years, will be writing a book detailing an authentic guide to mauritius and the sites, as written by a British born Mauritian, with a long beautiful family history on the island.
Amazing walks and great views. Very picturesque and it showcases the beauty of Mauritius in a grandiose fashion. There small streams everywhere and nice waterfalls. It can be visited from various different points
Very nice place with lots of nature to see, many scenic views. Will definitely visit there again for lots more pictures. Well as promised I did get back there. The weather was not that great, did get get a few pictures but not enough in 360 degree 🤔but will definitely have to go back 🤗😍. Thanks for your viewing😎
