The Coloured Canyon presents one of the most magnificent rock formations in the world. Driving through the Watir Valley to reach the canyon, the rock formations are an incomparable attraction: they vary from sandstone to limestone, granite and veins of basalt dominate the scenery through the entire hike.
It’s a maze of sandstone rocks in hues of yellow, purple, red, magenta and gold reaching up in some places a height of 40 meters. The uneven forms and height of the rocks sometimes make climbing necessary, so be prepared and try to get there as early as possible, not only because of the weather, but also to avoid the crowds. Although you might agree that the magic of the place is best enjoyed when you’re on your own, you will have to take a guided tour. Our team will be happy to assist you organizing your trip and if you wish you can have your guide booked through the Front Office.
