Rochester Falls

Rochester Falls is a waterfall situated in the Savanne district of Mauritius. Highly popular for its rectangular flank rocks, the fall is one of the most popular tourist attractions and the widest waterfall in Mauritius.

The waterfall is located on the Savanne River at an elevation of 152 meters above sea level, approximately 2.5 km from Souillac (the capital of the Savanne district), and it tumbles from a height of about 10 m (33 ft).

The water falls down a height of 10 meters through the rocky beds of the Savanne River in thick white foam but with gentle gurgling sounds.

The front view of the waterfall is breathtaking: white water crashing down the rocky cliffs into a pool of clear water reflecting the patch of blue sky above, the greenery all around in the form of ferns climbing up the smoother parts of the cliffs and the trees all around the river banks casting their shadows here and there.

It makes an ideal place to stop by and have a nice picnic and enjoy the serene atmosphere with the sounds of the falling water and happy chirping of birds.
