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 .

El Cierro de Siete Colores is a very beautiful mountain which as the name reveals has 7 different colors. There is a spot in the center of the village from where you have a great view. The whole area around Purmamarca is very nice and you can do small hikes and enjoy the colorful surroundings.... Absolutely worth a visit.....:-)

This is a really peaceful village with not much to see apart from the coloured hills, but in my opinion it largely beats some of the more touristy attractions. To get the best view of the hills, you have to take a small path that isnt very well marked, but you can get some info at the tourist information center.... More

Great erosion landscape showing many different colors. Worth while looking at in the morning and in the evening before sunset.

From various parts of the village, you can admire this hill with its multi-hued colors - peaceful, relaxing and exciting at the same time.

The best view point is located out of the town. Just before entering the town on the way from S S de Jujuy city. Due to the light direction, it would be better to watch in the morning. Only the view point (a little hill) located in the twon requires comission only a few Peso.

Impressive colors!!!!! Purmamarca is some two and half hours driving from Salta. The mountain is really impressive with all the colors you can see!! If possible try to visit it in the morning when sunlight is direct toward the mountain!! If you are a nature lover you can reserve one hour to seat and enjoy the view!!'

We did a road trip over the course of a few days through Tucuman, Salta, and Jujuy, and this was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. I was told before seeing it that it was amazing, but I couldn't have imagined how cool it actually was. The colors are so vibrant and unique, definitely some interesting geology! Hicimos... More

Do the circular walk that starts at one end of the village and ends at the other. It is a gravel road, and pedestrian only. It is spectacular if it is a sunny day.
