PurmamarcaPurmamarca is a town in Jujuy province in Northwest Argentina.
On footYou can hike between Pucarama and Tilcara, and see the hills at Maimará and the Cerro Paleta del Pintor a little further. It is about 25 km.
Cerro de Siete ColoresAn incredibly beautiful multicoloured hill. Best view around 10:00. Unfortunately, the best viewpoints charge AR$10, like on the roof of the bus station and the hill right in front of it. However, the close viewpoints (like the hill in front) do not really appreciate the green mountain behind (being part of the 7 colors). You can take better pictures a few 100 m before the town on the main road.
If you still want to have the view from the top of the hill in front but skip the $10 entrance, take the trail on the sun-side of the hill up to the right. The mountain is not private property, just on the other side's entrance you walk through someone's backyard, which is why they charge $10. Don't mind the "Peligroso" signs, they were probably put up by the very same people. The trail to the right is not very steep—easy to medium difficulty.
