The Seven Colored Earths was an unexpected site with its range of red colors forming softly rolling curves, mysterious and unexpected within its surrounding world of rich green

The park is well developed and touristy. Nevertheless, the colored earth is impressive and worth visiting. The waterfall is nice too.

Hi I was not aware that there was a larger site with 20 plus colours. I can say the 7 colours are well worth a visit apart from the coloured earth there is a tortoise park which is fascinating and a nice cafe. The scenery is... More
