Canyoneering: the sport of exploring a canyon by engaging in such activities as rappelling, rafting, and waterfall exploration.

The Tamarind Falls remain the most famous in Mauritius thanks to the beautiful “7 Cascades” view point. Though, don’t try to count “7 waterfalls” as it’s only a name. The day begins with abseiling (repelling) of a waterfall of 40 m and continues with a hike to the second waterfall where you will zipline across. The adventure ends at the largest of the waterfalls, 55 m,  where the view of the gorge is simply and purely amazing. A short ascent of around 30 mins will bring this adventurous day to an end.
