In the province of Jujuy one of the most photographed places in Argentina stands out: Cerro de los Siete Colores
The north of our country is full of places that dazzle with its beauty and warmth. In the province of Jujuy one of the most photographed places in Argentina stands out: Cerro de los Siete Colores. Located in Purmamarca, it is a wonderful rock formation that shows the combination of a unique game.The slopes of the hill have different shades in vivid colors, such as a rainbow on the mainland: green, yellow, pink, white, purple, red, orange, are part of the catalogue that this natural show has to offer us. The different shades are the product of a slow geological formation in which various minerals settled over several million years.To visit the Cerro de los Siete Colores, the best way is to take an excursion from the city of Purmamarca, on a tour that takes about an hour. There you can do a short trekking around the back, called the Camino de los Colorados, or climb it. It is also possible to climb to the viewpoints that surround the village to contemplate it in front of it.Just to be able to appreciate it in all its splendor, it is necessary to get early and hope that the first rays of sunshine reflected on the multicolored rocks give us one of the most unique experiences of our lives.
