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.

A highlight.on the road north of Salta. Colours and views are fantastic. Do not be fooled by the usual damp atmosphere in Salta. Once you break through the low cloud it is usually very hot and sunny. Sunscreen a must.

A must see. Purmamarca is surrounded with these mountains. It is possible to trek into the mountains for a better view.
