The main attraction of this park is the coloured earth, an eye-candy, in 23 shades. From ochre to pink, the ashes of a volcanic eruption have undergone weathering offering today a spectacular sight, attracting visitors from all around the world. The park is surrounded by amazing waterfalls amidst lush greenery.
Some endemic trees line the paths through the rich vegetation. Peacocks, hens, goats, ducks, stags loiter freely around the park which can be visited on foot, in a safari van or by quad.
Ziplines run all throughout the park, the longest being 1200 metres. Two restaurants can cater for hungry walkers. AIM tested Le Bigarade, an alcohol-free restaurant. Local dishes range from £10 to £20. The park also hosts a souvenir shop and a museum about rocks and their formation. The place is child-friendly but the playground needs serious maintenance.
Those looking for a sensational experience, will enjoy the nepalese bridge, ziplining and quad-biking. Visit their website www.lavalleedescouleurs.com for more information.
