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!

We had to stop here on the way to Chile, the city is very small and don't have much to offer but the colors of this hill is really beautiful.

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

Very beautiful and different. The road worth the trip, even if it's not a sunny day in Jujuy , don't give up. At Pumamarca it's almost sure the sun will be shining. Very cold in the winter , very hot in the summer , very dry all year . Great experience . Don't miss the Salinas.

This town is a must see in Jujuy. So cute! When you get there, you'll be blown away by the Cerro de los Siete Colores (hill of the seven colors). Walk around the town and you'll find lots of different spots to take some pictures with the stunning colorful hill. Then go to the main plaza and look through the... More

As the name suggests, this place displayed the myriad hues that festoon the ground in the foothills of the Andes. One of those places where you sit back and take stock and sit in silence to stare. Must see.
