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
Breath taking experience with much to see. Take an umbrella depending on the season as we came when it was raining but it was unbelievably great to see this in real life. If you come by car (rental) leave before it gets dark because their is poor visibility almost pitch black and roads are super bendy and not clear.
Very lovely viewing area. The perfect time to go is in autumn because then it is not so jam packed with tourists and the temperature combined with the humidity is much lower compared with the summer. There is a restaurant that provides some tasty refreshments.
It's quite an odd tourist attraction, since what you're seeing is essentially a mound of earth. The seven colours are visible, and it might be interesting for nature and geology lovers. There is some science behind it, and it's a bit interesting. Would have given the main attraction 3 stars, but the extra star here is for the tortoise patch. There are currently six giant tortoises that can be seen, and that bit made the attraction more interesting.
If you are from India this place will not amuse you. For others this is a place where you can see 7 coloured sand/ earth, view is beautiful. You can take multiple pics and background will be awesome.
Very nice place with interesting land colors and turtles. Not time demanding,you can walk through in 20 minutes once behind the entrance. You will use tickets bought when entering the park (450rs for 2 adults). Inside park I recommend to use some vehicle,unless you want to spend there whole day..
