I was so glad to have stayed the night. The ever changing color of the mountain is just breathtaking. We walked the path (1 hr slow walk) but we just wanted to move so slowly to see the shadow changes. 7 colors are the least, purple, pink, peach, plum, copper, blue, peacock..... The town is small with 4 cross streets.... More

You really must allow time in this town to allow you to see this hill at all times of the day. Each time you look at with different lighting it seems the hill changes color. We have seen many colorful mountains - but never all the colors in one mountain/hill!

Take the path and once you connect to the main road on the other side take a right off the road to stay awhile and see the colors from this vantage point. It may be even more beautiful on this side than the view from town, and it is a tranquil spot. Be sure to bring water. It can get... More

Whilst not in the same class as the Rainbow mountain near Cusco in Peru this is a beautiful sight, especially in the late afternoon sunshine. We can do an easy 2k walk from the village around the nearer mountain, great views. Avoid early in the day when the tourist buses arrive.

The best light for photography is in the morning. There are several spots in town and on the road to get good shots. But don't miss the Los Colorados circuit behind the town, if you want to see beautiful mountain colors.

It's a long way to get there but Purmamarca and these hills are wonderful. Awesome cliffs and hills of wonderful pastel colours surround this little town. It's all free!

This is a long day if you are going there with a tour, about 12-13 hours with about 500 km to do. You do and see a lot and you are ending to this famous hill. We were disappointed because we arrived their too late to see the 7 colors which is a more of a photoshop thing as I... More

beautiful place like stepping back in time coming here. Wonderful people. Good food. Great market in the town square. Public buses run here every day from Salta. Plan to spend a couple of days here if you have time as it is just a beautiful village and a nice place to relax and unwind. The mountain is beautiful too and... More

This 7 colored Hill is probably one of the most amazing and ravishing looks and mesmerizing color hills i have ever seen; situated on the western far north of Argentina close to a dusty small town Purmamarca. I took a day trip from Jujuy, and the whole road trip is covered by amazing rock formation and colors. A must visit... More
