  • This waterfall was amazing. Falling from a height makes a loud noise. Quite a fascinating fall and can be a one time visit  more »
  • It is a easy but nice waterfall to get to with the car park right up to the vantage point for a quick picture. The background is lush green and the height of the waterfall is comparable to the Empire ...  more »
  • Like any other waterfall. Good views. Go to the top for some nice clicks. Cant miss this because the visit is anyway included in the ticket.  more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful waterfall...offcourse it is crowded being one of the top attractions. You get a very good view.
  • The waterfall is nice. You get a good view to see the waterfall, however the waterfall isn't too huge though.
  • If you are used to travelling this waterfall is not spectacular at all. Nevertheless it is nice to watch and the visit is included in the entry fee to the 7 coloured earths. Nice to see but nothing special.
  • Visited chamarel waterfall on south tour going towards seven coloured earth.. The waterfall is not great. Dont expect a Niagara fall here.. It has 2 observation ares where you can click pictures.. You have to climb some steps to get better view and find place where everyone jostling for selfies.. Didn't find anything great..
