Embark on a tour to the Great Salt Flats, and visit Purmamarca and its Seven Colors Mountain.
Salinas Tour and Purmamarca, and its Mountain of 7 Colours
We will pick you up between 7:00 - 7:45 am. Somewhere around 4pm and 5pm we arrive at the Great Salt Flats at 3450 m above sea level. This desert has a surface of 212km2, and makes it an ideal place to play with perspectives through the lens of your camera. You will also find the "house of salt", as well as different sculptures out of salta.
Leaving the salt flats, on our way to Purmamarca, we take the Route 52 up the mountain to Lipan, which is located in the district of Tumbaya, Jujuy at 4170 m above sea level. As we work our way up, the landscape is getting more and more spectacular and arid. Climbing the highest point of our trip, we admire the most impressive things at this altitude, the zigzagging trail in Route 52. Once arrived at this open space, we find craftsmen working with rocks and stones from the area.
After coming down the 1000 bends of Hill of Lipan, we get at around 6pm to Purmamarca, located next to iconic "Cerro de los 7 Colores" (Seven Colors Mountain). Purmamarca is one of the most important pieces of paradise at the beginning of the Quebrada de Humahuaca. It is a place to fall in love with because of its natural beauty, its architecture of precious houses and its narrow streets. In this village we make our last break, which allows you to buy handicrafts around the main plaza.
