  • There are amazing colored hills that look like a desert on another planet. Going there on a summer afternoon is not recommended as you cannot find water, trees or any shaded area. The soil is loose, clearly of volcanic origin, and products of mud volcanoes are scattered everywhere. We must walk carefully so as not to fall into the faults and caves, washed out by rain streams.
  • Very beautiful place, with fantastic mountains and landscape. There isn't a tourist information or some locals, shops... but it is very nice, natural, without tourists. There is just a line next the road where to park the car, but the colours are fantastic.
  • Amazing places
  • Wonder for the eyes, these mountains, which do not stand out for their height or for their vertiginous geology, dazzle us with their colors, layers of red, pink and white superimposed in capricious ways that make it a delight for the eyes to walk through them. Both following the road with the car and seeing them from the outside, as well as spending some time diving and easily climbing their slopes to see from up close how the spectacle of color is formed.
  • Brilliant place .. no tourists and fairy-tale mountains, accessible from the road. You stop and in 10 minutes you are on the nearby top of these fairy-tale mountains with great views. Sandy mountains, easy to climb and safe. It's definitely worth visiting this place
