Hi everyone! Is it better to reach this place (the chamarel region) from Le Morne or is it easily doable from Flic en flac? Also is it realistic to fit the following into a day: 7 coloured earth Chamarel waterfall Black River gorges walk and Curious Corner? I'll be driving a rented car and not staying at hotels with tours (or info) available so please do help!
