Waterfall Nature / Park
Admire an impressive natural water feature at Chamarel Waterfall. Plunging 83 m (272 ft) in a single drop, the waterfall spills over a sheer cliff face surrounded by thick vegetation, creating an iconic sight. View the fall from the observation deck located at its top, and descend to the pool at its base to enjoy some swimming in the shallow waters. Prebook to experience rappelling down the waterfall's length, taking in the scenery and the power of the ancient gush of water from a dramatic perspective.

  • At 8 euros per person, coupled with the land of 7 colors, it is a bit expensive for me proposed show. The fall is, rather pretty, in a nice landscape, but can be found elsewhere all as pretty places and cheaper or even free in Mauritius.

  • Attractive falls set in a beautiful location but doesn't compare with the more spectacular, large falls elsewhere in the world (hence 3 stars rather than 4). There is now a proper viewing platform tha...  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..
