Trip to Mauritius

This is a small waterfall with narrow stream of water falling from good heights. The surrounding greens make it a good visit to do.

As this waterfall on the route to 7 colored Earth and also near rumeira Chamarel, you cant miss it. It is nice size waterfall, but after Victoria falls any other seems sooooo small.
