Create an itinerary including The Hill of Seven Colors
Part of the region's vast moonscape of mountains and crags, The Hill of Seven Colors dazzles with its multi-hued rock layers. Rising above town, the hill stands as a geological history book, each of its colored layers representing a different period of river and sea sediment deposited over 600 million years. For a thorough and relatively easy sightseeing tour on foot, consider accessing the hills via the 3 km (2 mi) loop trail that begins in town. Along the way, you'll pass protruding rock formations, sweeping views over the valley, and eventually the fabled hill itself. Bring your camera, as the right lighting can clearly illuminate each different colored band.
