A must do in Purmamarca

A small walk you have to do if you stay in Purmamarca. The colors of the hills are even more beautiful at sunset.

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

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.

especially the walk around it is nice as you get away from Purmamarca and are left with an awesome landscape. Walk starts just left of "town"....you cannot miss it!

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.
