Chamarel seven colored earth

The “seven-coloured earth” of Chamarel is a geological curiosity and a major tourist attraction of Mauritius.

This is a small area of strikingly bare landscape located within a large, dense forest. The earth is particularly unusual; created by volcanic rocks that cooled at different temperatures, the earth form beautiful patterns of colour in the exposed hillsides.

When visiting the park, you will be able to walk between the many sand dunes, along trails and see this unique sight. Also, there is a small petting farm where you can see and pet Giant Turtles which found their home at the park.
