Chamarel Coloured Earth - Review
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!

Chamarel Coloured Earth, Chamarel Reviews
A different experience altogether, drove to get there, nice drive ... keep to the speed limit. Place provide a different attraction to normal tourist attraction. Its different from what you would normally would be visiting ... glorious waterfaĺl ... s must visit
Fascinating volcanic remnant. Go when the sun shines to bring out the colour. Mind the winding roads to get there - it is slow going. Also visit the waterfall just a few hundred metres away. There is a coffee shop and there are toilets too.
Scenic drive to come to Chamarel and I thought the 7 colored earths was bigger but was not disappointed. Lovely to take a short walk around it and see the tortoises too.
Beautiful work of nature (volcanic eruption + oxidation) resulting in coloured surface with very nice background. You can also (and I recommend so) visit a waterfall which is near the area and also a little exhibit with turtles.
Once agin an amazing place to visit. The amazing part is the geological wonder. It is a hilly patch of land amidst a small hill. The earth has 7 colours spread over few thousand sq. Meters. The varied colours look very pretty and intriguing. It is must visit place in the South of the island of Mauritius.
