Pathways trail through the valley, offering you views of various rock structures on and around the mountain. Due to mineral deposits in the soil, the rocks hold clearly defined color variations, so the mountainprojects a rainbow-like appearance. Take a tour or rent a car to visit this natural attraction. If you would like to have the area to yourself, visit during the afternoon when the site has the fewest tourists.

  • The long journey from San Pedro is worth anyway. Not everything's colorful but nevertheless we were surprised by the offers coloured rock formations. The last kilometre of the arrival makes perfect the Outdooractivities. Nice place to escape the crowds of San Pedro. Picnic is recommended.

  • Geysers being banned access road that was washed away by heavy rains, our guide took us to walk a very nice walk in the Rainbow Valley. lUn very well marked trail, runs through this Valley and bypasses wonderful blocks. The colors of the rocks are just incredible, mixtures of red, green, yellow and gray, blancss all in a very serene. A very nice getaway not to be missed.
