This trail of about 3 km (1.8 miles) follows part of the Tumbaya river bed (tributary to the Purmamarca River), behind the Seven Colors Mountain.
Although rocky, the trail is easily passable and the circuit ends at the west side of the village at the foot of El Porito Lookout point from which you can get a panoramic view of the area and its surroundings. This easy-to-access mountain got this name due to its squash shape (“poro” means squash in the Spanish variety of this region).
The color contrast, the sculptural shapes that cover the surrounding mountainsides, the brightness of the light and its clear skies, make this trail unique and worth of being captured in visitors´ memory and hundreds of pictures.
You can enjoy the landscape, make a picnic o simply meditate following strict hygiene and protection measures because the area is of private ownership.
Over time, Los Colorados has became a representative icon of the Purmamarca village, a must visit in every tourist journey and a wonderful space that deserves to be shared and enjoyed with family and friends.
