Viewpoint of Morne Brabant and l’île aux Bénitiers

Discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Le Morne, a rugged mountain that juts into the Indian Ocean at the southwest of Mauritius. It was used as a shelter by runaway slaves and maroons, through the 18th and early years of the 19th centuries.

Protected by the mountain’s isolated and almost inaccessible cliffs, the escaped slaves formed small settlements in the caves and on the summit of Le Morne. The oral traditions associated with the maroons have made Le Morne a symbol of the slaves’ fight for freedom, their suffering, and their sacrifice, all of which have relevance to the countries from which the slaves came - the African mainland, Madagascar, India, and South-east Asia.

About 500 metres off the coast at La Gaulette (South West of Mauritius) is l'ile aux Bénitiers. It is a large coral sand island approximately two kilometres long and 500 metres at its widest point and 65 hectares in area.

The island itself has very little biodiversity value since it has a highly modified vegetative cover and is used as a coconut plantation.

Chamarel Village

The village of Chamarel in southwest Mauritius is home to two natural wonders - the magnificent Chamarel waterfall and the seven-coloured earth of Chamarel. It has a population of 700 and was named after the Frenchman Charles Antoine de Chazal de Chamarel, who lived in the area around 1800.

The Seven-Coloured Earth

The seven-coloured earth is one of the incredible wonders of Mauritius and is considered one of the must-see places on the island. The seven-coloured earth is a natural phenomenon and a prominent tourist attraction. The colours evolved through conversion of basaltic lava to clay minerals. It is a relatively small area of sand dunes comprising sand of seven distinct colours (approximately red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow).

Geologists are still intrigued by the rolling dunes of multi-coloured lunar-like landscape. The colours, red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow never erode in spite of torrential downpours and adverse climatic conditions.

Chamarel Waterfalls

Known as the highest waterfalls of Mauritius, the Chamarel Waterfalls has a height of about 100 meters (almost the same height as the Statue of Liberty) cascading down against a scenic backdrop of luxuriant forests and mountains which is simply breath-taking.

You will find exposed volcanic rocks dating back to some 8-10 million years ago, thus representing some of the oldest lava rocks of Mauritius. The waterfall is formed by three distinct streams of water sourcing from the River Saint Denis which is nearby the village Cachette, Cascade Chamarel and La Crete.

The Curious Corner of Chamarel

Curious Corner as the name states is for those of us who like snooping around and have an ever-probing mind, as we all naturally are. It is a fascinating, fun and social excursion into the wonderful world of optical illusions, which will leave you quite literally, not believing your eyes! Some of the attractions at Curious Corner are guaranteed to give your mind a wobble.

Located just opposite the 7-coloured earth entrance in the Chamarel village on the west of the island, with an impounding façade, on a winding hilly road, it is a house filled with a variety of astounding delusional fantasies.

Constructed passionately by a team of thrilling professionals, with the main aim to surprise their visitors, curious minds with mythical thoughts. Curious Corner is surely out to surprise you in every sense of the way, with just under 40 exhibits set over the 5,000sq meters.

Varangue sur Morne has worked overtime, hosted important events and functions, with well-known personalities, such as Mrs Sonia Gandhi, Prince Edward, President Jacques Chirac, Robert de Niro, and important dignitaries / Heads of States.
