Important Information
Departure Point
Traveler pickup is offered
The driver picks you up at 8 a.m. from the hotel or any other accommodation.(Depending on your location) You are settled in a comfortable air-conditioned brand-new car and here starts your memorable journey. You drive through local villages to reach the newly built motorway Verdun where you may enjoy a breathtaking view of the north west and also the second highest mountain ‘The Pieter Both’ at 820 meters. You head directly to Floreal for a quick visit to the Ship Model Factory and then to Curepipe for the dormant volcano Trou Aux Cerfs. While driving to the sacred lake and hindu temple, Grand Bassin you will pass by the largest reservoir of Mauritius, Mare Aux Vacoas. The first thing you will see when you get closer to Grand Bassin is the largest, 33 m high statue of Hindu Goddess Durga in the world and few meters away you may also admire the 33 m high statue of Shiva also known as Mangal Mahadev standing with his Trishul (trident). Grand Bassin is a crater lake surrounded by hindu temples, it is considered the most sacred place in Mauritius. The driver will take you to the lake for pictures and for those who are interested in knowing the hindu culture the priest does some chanting and prayers specially for you. Your visit continues to the iconic Alexandra Fall which is hidden in the deep jungle of Black River Gorge. From the parking area you will have to walk across a little path surrounded by trees and a small river to get to the view point approx. 5 mins. I must say it worth walking to get there for the amazing scenery you will find. Then you will visit the largest protected forest of Mauritius The Black River Gorge National Park for a much-needed walk in nature. Before going to Chamarel you will have a lunch break where you will have the opportunity to taste some local food. Then you will head to the highest waterfall of over 80 meters high, The Chamarel waterfall, followed by a visit to The Chamarel 7 colored earth. World famous attraction, it is a unique geological phenomenon resulting in 7 colored earth. To reach the site, a walk in the luxurious tropical forest is a must. The driver drops you back to the hotel. And it’s the end of your memorable journey through nature……
