If you're going to Salta, you basically can't miss this place. Just go see it. There are 7 colours of mountains all the way on the drive there, and on hikes around Purmamarca. I'm told the sunrise and sunset is gorgeous but our hours did not coincide with sunset, and our morning was cloudly. But it's gorgeous with or without... More

We stopped in Purmamarca on our way to Tilcara to visit the Inca ruins. The drive leading up to this area and beyond is simply stunning!!!! The town's square has a large artisan market. I think it might be daily as we were not there on the weekend. Note the best pictures are taken just entering the town. You'll know... More

This is one of most beautiful sites I saw in Argentina. Every turn of this 3 kilometer walk is another amazing view. The colors look like they came out of a painter's palette . The walk takes over an hour, and is just incredible.

The Hill is attractive from a distance, but it is magnificent when seen up close. Do not miss the 4 kilometer walk that takes your very close to the hill and all the way around the town.

If you are not tired to death by the end of the day, I strongly recommend a walk around the hills around sunset. Or if you're an early-morning type of person, the colours are also amazing during sunrise.

The hill is best seen in the morning or in the late afternoon , the colours change with the light of the sun . You won't regret waiting a little bit for the right moment , it's certainly worth the effort .
