The Hill of Seven Colors, Purmamarca

4.8
#1 of 64 in Parks in Northern Argentina
Part of the region's vast moonscape of mountains and crags, The Hill of Seven Colors dazzles with its multi-hued rock layers. Rising above town, the hill stands as a geological history book, each of its colored layers representing a different period of river and sea sediment deposited over 600 million years. For a thorough and relatively easy sightseeing tour on foot, consider accessing the hills via the 3 km (2 mi) loop trail that begins in town. Along the way, you'll pass protruding rock formations, sweeping views over the valley, and eventually the fabled hill itself. Bring your camera, as the right lighting can clearly illuminate each different colored band.

    Best visited in the morning when the sun casts the best light on the hills. The hill on the opposite side of the road can be scaled in order to get even better views.  more »

    Well worth taking the circular walk around this feature, and see it either in the morning or late afternoon as the colours are gorgeous with the sun on them.  more »

    l strange colors of land attention to go up on the hill overlooking them must pay 10 pesos, worth it
