Chamarel Waterfall, Chamarel Reviews - Write a Review
Very beautiful, but smaller than I imagined, don't plan to spend more than an hour or so here. We stretched it to 2 hours by enjoying a Coke while planning what else we could visit in the remainder of the day.
It was a nice waterfall, but it was a bit of a shame there was not more exploring around that could be done. A few hiking trails around the area would have been benificial to the experience. As it is, you pay a single entry that permits access to the waterfall and then the 7 colours attraction up the road. It is purely a photo opportunity.
Chamarel Waterfall (also referred to simply as "Chamarel Falls") as cascades more than 300 feet downward into a lush gorge. These enchanting falls are located on the island of Mauritius, which sits in the Indian Ocean roughly 700 miles due east of Madagascar. Ecotourism is an expanding industry here, as this volcanic island is home to extraordinary landscapes and marine life.
Good place to visit with friends. There are two waterfalls and they are heaviest during summer periods when heavy rains occur in Mauritius. According to the scientists by looking at the bottom they said it existed 8 to 10 million years ago.. In this place near the waterfalls there are rocks which have 7 different colors. They got the colors as they cooled at different temperatures during volcanic eruption. This is the only place in the world where one can witness unique geological phenomena.
It's okay. The place has a slight hike. But it's paved steps, so it's not a big deal. The view isn't great, but it's nice. It's pretty average by Mauritian standards. Definitely something you should see when you're heading back from Chamarel, 7 Colored Earth.
