Cerro de los Siete Colores or “The Hill of Seven Colors” is one of the hills bordering the tiny village of Purmamarca in north-western Argentina. The hill was formed by a complex geological process that involved deposition of sea, lake and river movements and subsequent elevation of the land due to the movement of the tectonic plates. It is said that you can see seven colors in the hill, but most people can pick out only four. The colors are most clearly visible in the morning.
