Rochester Falls

Rochester Falls – Souillac, Mauritius

Rochester Falls is a waterfall on the Savanne River. It is famous for the strange rectangular form of its rocky flank. It is located approximately 2.5 km (1.6 mi) from Souillac, a village close to the southernmost point of the main island of Mauritius. The falls tumble from the Savanne River from a height of about 10 m (33 ft) where constant erosion has fashioned the basalt rock into upright columns. Youngsters often perform dare-devil dives into the water below
