A geological formation that will blow away your mind with its first glimpse; the seven coloured earth is located in the Chamarel Plains of the Rivière Noire District in south-western Mauritius. Its multi-coloured sand dunes in seven distinct colours of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow are surreal.
The best part of this phenomenon is that, if you pick up a handful of sand and mix it spontaneously, it will eventually separate out in multi-colours! Another striking feature of these sand dunes are- they never erode, even in the torrential and tropical rains of Mauritius!
This is one of the top rated attractions of Mauritius. Souvenir shops selling small test tubes filled with coloured earth are dotted around the sand dunes!
