Chamarel Waterfall

Would you love to hike to this pool?

Chamarel Waterfall is fed by three streams that filter into Saint Denis River and it looks – and flows – at its best between December and April. Our tip? Pull on your hiking boots and make the three-hour trek to the base for a rewarding swim in the pool and the chance to experience the spray of the waterfalls up close. Hire an expert guide to lead you through the tropical rainforest and enlighten you on the birdlife, ‘falls and geology of the area en route.

You can watch the twin waterfalls tumble over the basalt cliff and drop around 100 metres into the oval pool below. While the water is what draws your eye, the volcanic rock shouldn’t be overlooked. These layers date back 8-10 million years!
