About Rochester Falls, Souillac
Located on the South of the Mauritius island, the Rochester falls offer an ultimate beautiful view with cascading waters and an extraordinary background. These falls are located on the cross point of the villages Souillac and Saint Aubin. What makes these falls an extraordinary one is its lava cliffs. They have been formed over the years of erosion and have rendered a spectacular backdrop of rectangular blocks stuck together against the waterfalls. The water of these falls gushes down from a height of 10 meters through the rocky beds of the Savanne River and forms a thick foam. With such enamouring beauty, these falls constitute a perfect picnic spot so as to keep you engaged for long hours.

Rochester Falls, Souillac Reviews
Very nice waterfalls and a basin below you can swim in it. The road there is a bit bumpy so you have to drive slow if you not have an SUV or Jeep as it is off-road. But it's totally worth to see.
Absolutely fantastic place. Don't forget your tripod if you want nice photos! And be aware that you might have to cross the (quite shallow) river if you want the best views.
The place is really marvellous. Magical view of the rocks and the water flowing down. Not so difficult to find if you go with someone who had already been there. No parking space as such and you have to park along the unpaved track from which you got in. We went there on a public holidays, so there were may people and the place felt safe. The water is really good and it's a real pleasure to go there. Important: do bring your mosquito repellents. And it's always recommended t never swim alone.
One of my most favourite places on Mauritius. There are two pathes to get to the waterfall. One for the view from above and one to get in the front of it. If you are not wanna jump from above into the water I think it's better to go the front side. You have to take dirt roads to get there and you have to walk the last part. But it is worth it. You can also get fresh coconuts where you have to park the car. When we were there it wasn't crowded at all. But it is one of the nicest waterfalls I know. Enjoy!
It takes a rocky drive to get here. After you park, you will arrive on the upstream of the waterfall. A local will show you a rope for crossing to the other side but of course you need to pay him some money. You can still get down to the downstream of the waterfall and go across the river by getting down the side road next to the carpark. The river is not very deep, for height about 170, the water is up between your knee and ankle but still please be careful when crossing since it is slippery on the rocks. But of course, if you are brave enough, you can jump down the waterfall like the locals do.
