Our planet is filled with bright, vibrant, and eye-catching destinations. You may feel every color of the rainbow on a walk on mountains with colorful soils, an amazing example of which is situated in northwest Iran.

On the drive traveling from Zanjan to Tabriz, you may see some scenery that for a moment you might think you are on another planet.

The natural phenomenon is named the Aladaglar mountains or Rainbow mountains! ‘’Ala’’ in Azeri Turkish language means colorful and ‘’Dag’’ means mountain.

Over millions of years, the different minerals in these stones have become oxidized in such a way that they now resemble the insides of the jawbreakers.

These painted mountains exist in a few places on earth, such as the Zhangye National Geopark in China, the Hornocal mountain range in Argentina, and the Ausangate mountains in Peru. In China, these mountains are said to be the result of millions of years of minerals and sandstone being pressed together and oxidized.
