Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: admire the sheer force of Chamarel Waterfall, identify plant and animal life at Ebony Forest Reserve, then explore the striking landscape at Seven Colored Earths, then see the interesting displays at Curious Corner of Chamarel, and finally get great views at Piton Canot.
