Cap Malheureux is a fishing village located at the Northern tip of Mauritius.

You will begin at Curepipe, a picturesque town in Mauritius that is also one of the largest commercial and residential towns in the island. It is here that you will find the impressive dormant volcano of Troux-aux-Cerfs, now more than 700,000 years old. Enjoy the breathtaking views atop this magnificent mountain.

Your journey continues with a brief stop at the miraculous Grand Bassin, the island’s most sacred lake for the Hindu community. It is popularly believed that the waters of this lake communicate with the waters of the holy Ganges of India. Thus, the lake of Grand Bassin is a place of worship for the many Mauritians that perform a yearly pilgrimage to celebrate the Maha Sivarati or “Siva’s Great Night”. On your visit to this legendary place you too will be honouring the Hindu Lord Siva with your presence.

And finally, we have reserved the best for last with a visit to Chamarel, a world-only phenomenon consisting of peculiar scenery featuring stretches of land of multi-coloured earths! The coloured earths of Chamarel are said to be the result of volcanic rocks cooling off at different temperatures and thus creating a unique scenery of beautiful patterns that never fail to amaze visitors time and time again. This particularly unusual landscape in the exposed hillsides poses an unusual visual recreation as these mounds of undulating coloured land can play tricks on your eyes.
The other wonder of Chamarel is the magnificent waterfall that emerges all the way from the moors down to the unique seven-coloured earths of Chamarel, making this place more bewitching and breathtaking to watch.
