Chamarel (coloured earth)

Coloured earth at Chamarel

Close to Black River Gorges National Park, from the village of Case Noyale, a winding road leads to the coloured earths at Chamarel. Over time the weathering and subsequent erosion of volcanic ash has led to the formation of exposed hills complete with contrasting tiers of different shades of red, yellow, green and blue. From the hillside an easy walking trail leads to the beautiful Chamarel waterfalls, cascading hundreds of feet down the side of a cliff.
