PLaces of Interest In Mauritius
Mauritius offers not only wonderful beaches and crystal clear turquoise lagoons, but also fascinating and exotic inland regions and town.

Black River Gorges
Black River Gorges with its original jungle and being the largest national park in Mauritius is a national park covering a landscape of 6,574 hectares. The national park was created in the year 1994 as a measure to protect the remaining forests in Mauritius. Black River Gorge national park is very famous for its waterfalls, hiking, vistas and valley. The visitors to Black river Gorge enjoy the wonderful hiking watching the epidemic plants and rare species of birds which exist only in Mauritius (the Pink Pigeon, the Echo Parakeet and the Mauritius Kestrel; all very rare species).
The national park is close to Vacoas and Mare aux Vacoas. As Black River Gorge is located in the central highlands, the island is much cooler when compared to other islands of Mauritius. The cold weather, beautiful valleys and the Chinese guava trees on the road side refresh the visitors generating a romantic feel. There is also a hilltop café in the national park which relaxes and refreshes the visitors with quick meals along with the view to the scenic beauty.

Chamarel Coloured Earth
Among the loveliest sites of the island are the seven-coloured earths at Chamarel where the earths are particularly unusual; created by volcanic rocks that cooled at different temperatures, the earths form beautiful patterns of color in the exposed hillsides. 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. The phenomenon has never been explained but it is believed the earths are composed of mineral rich volcanic ash. Sunrise is the best time to see the Coloured Earths.

Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens

The Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens, ranked 8th among the world’s finest botanical garden, more formally known as Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Gardens, is one of the most visited attractions in Mauritius. Opened as a private garden by the French governor of Mauritius nearly 300 years ago, the gardens served as a major horticultural research center for the French and British during the colonial period. Today it's home to dozens of varieties of palm trees, as well as medicinal plants, fish ponds, and an amazing collection of Queen Victoria water lilies.
Allow at least 2 hours to visit the gardens. Amongst the most impressive sights is the peaceful pond concealed by the enormous floating leaves of the Giant Amazon water lily.

Casela Bird Park
Located in a magnificent site between Bambous and Tamarin in the Riviere Noire district, the Casela Bird Park is home to 142 species of birds from around the world. It is a major bio diversity hotspot and is rich in varied flora and fauna. The main attraction remains the Mauritian Pink Pigeon, one of the rarest birds in the world, still fighting to avoid the fate of the dodo. One of the giant tortoises is 150 years old. The Park covers 25 acres (10 hectares) and lies on the flanks of Rempart Mountain with views of cane clothed countryside rolling down to the west coast. There is a restaurant and snack bar and walks criss-crossing ponds and streams. Down a set of steps beyond the aviaries there is a zoo of tigers, monkeys, lemurs, stag and a lake of graceful flamingos.

Domaine Les Pailles

It's been extinct for a long time and the crater floor is now heavily wooded, but the crater affords lovely views around the island. A tarred road leads gently up to and around the rim.
