  • If you're in the Souillac area it's worth your while to discover! Rochester Falls with its strange geometrical rock formation. We had a very hard time finding it, for there are many different paths to...  more »
  • We have rented a car to us and are going on. A sign showed us the direction. .was then came was a track stones. The rest then walking... it was nice. .. But if I had booked it at a hotel as a trip, I would have been disappointed.

  • 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.
