Beautiful nature
Feb. 2021 • Couples
We did the Machabee trail. The Hike itself was around 8km’s and around 2 hrs in time. The trails were really well marked. The park has been wonderfully kept. Highly recommended visiting for some fresh air and beautiful scenery.

It’s not easy

It’s not easy. It’s not kept. It’s rural and rugged and you will be stiff afterwards but it is worth it. Swimming in the waterfalls and walking through the jungle will give your Mauritius holiday a new dimension. The local guides are friendly. I recommend seeing this side of Mauritius 🇲🇺

Enjoy the beauty of nature

Visited during a slight rain and it was wonderful. There is a little walk from the parking area. Few souvenir shops are also spread around the walking trail.
It is calm and you can enjoy the tranquility and the splendor of the nature around you

We were lucky to catch a glimpse of the Paille-en-Queue, bird of Mauritius found on the logo of Air Mauritius. Also got to buy good souvenirs nearby.

Magical but visit on Sunny day

We were unlucky with weather as it was raining and cloudy.
View was limited.
What we manage to see was magically and peaceful.
Allow time to visit.

Breathtaking

Amazing drive through on the roads to see the Gorges. Once you arrive, you can take a short walk from the parking to the most breathtaking view. it is gorgeous.

Not much else to see, unless you take one of the many hikes that you can do in the area.

The easy way
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Take the car up to the Gorges viewpoint carpark. A little walk takes you to a breath taking path along the precipice.. No worries you're behind a solid barrier.. Hang around and meet the macaques they'll be after a banana or two.

Indescribable view!!!
Feb. 2020 • Friends
That was one of the place on the top of you can say: “Now I really know what Mauritius is!”. This is mind blowing view,you feel yourself the part of the nature even if there are a lot of people around. While being there I saw some fruit bats flying above and some monkeys playing nearby. Be careful with these monkeys,they are stealing things from the people! This is “must be” place for everybody:)

lovely walk and sight seeing
Oct. 2019
there a trail to follow, we stopped at three different photo opportunnities and walks. great mountain views, wildlife and birds to see.

it was great to watch the monkeys, they are jsut the funniest things. If you take a banana on the off chance you wont be disappointed.
We also bought a wooden budda from on of the locals selling wood carvings, last time we bought a monkey carving. they have handmade products for sale and a reasonable price.
