  • 2 circuits to choose from for this superb walk: the Green (20 min), the orange (2 hours). Wear flat shoes. Circuit very easy but not suitable to people disabled because, by now, very stony paths going uphill or downhill. Beautiful scenery! We go off-season, in March 2017, what I would advise because nor too crowded and not hot. A lot of colors in shades of Orange, red, purple. Superb fairy chimneys! Place of great tranquility (off-season ;-). Suitable for children of at least 5 or 6 years

  • That beautiful colors, the landscape is Lunar by time, weather it's a nice family ballad conducive to beautiful pictures. Parking is chargeable but access to the site is free, the circuits are well signposted and accessible by all. A good time in perspective.

  • OWL colorado Provençal. Site that is worth a visit no need to go to the United States. Correct parking but beware of the little bridge which spans the river markets are narrow.

  • Very nice trail. We would recommend to do it very early or very late in the day as it can be very crowdy and tourists run all over the place without any respect for the site. There's more erosion due to tourist then due to water...
  • The colorful hills here are great too look at, albeit. If visiting during the summer however, go early to avoid the heat and keep in mind the signs pointing out the danger of fire.
  • Very funny day out. The place is really worth the parking price. Best at sunset
  • Some very interesting formations, the shortest hike is ~1h light roundtrip, worth doing it!
  • A lot of photo opportunities! But you need to avoid when the weather is hot.
