A gift for the eyes
In the province of Jujuy, one of the most photographed places in Argentina stands out: the Cerro de los Siete Colores (Hill of the Seven Colors).
The north of our country is full of places that dazzle with their beauty and warmth. In the province of Jujuy, one of the most photographed places in Argentina stands out: the Cerro de los Siete Colores (Hill of the Seven Colors). Located in Purmamarca, it is a wonderful rock formation that shows the combination of a unique range. The hillsides of the hill present different shades in bright colors, like a rainbow on land: green, yellow, pink, white, purple, red, orange, are part of the catalog that this natural spectacle has to offer us. The different shades are the product of a slow geological formation in which they sediment various minerals over several million years. To visit the Cerro de los Siete Colores, the best way is to go on an excursion from the city of Purmamarca, which takes about an hour. There you can do a short trekking in the back, called the Camino de los Colorados, or climb it. It is also possible to climb the viewpoints that surround the town to contemplate it from the front. However, in order to appreciate it in all its splendor, it is necessary to get up early and wait for the first rays of sun reflected in the multicolored rocks to give us one of the most unique experiences of our lives.
