What people are saying about Purmamarca
The humahuaca's gorge is a beautiful arid area but the 14 colours mountain is a natural wonder, a rare breathtaking must-see in the world. A 4 wheel-drive is recommended to climb along the unsealed road up to this 4350 m outlook in Hornocal but it is only 25 km from Humahuaca village. At this altitude, light headaches, dizziness, breathing and heart troubles may occur. So, it is better not to walk too far and stay by the car and enjoy the stunning view.
We had a great day seeing the coloured mountains and the salt lake with enough time to take in the sights. Very good guide who spoke excellent English and provided lots of interesting information. The hike at the end was pretty short. The service at the restaurant we went for lunch was terrible. The guide tried to make up for it by extending our stay in Purmamarca, which resulted in us coming back quite late in the evening.
Great day out to see the coloured mountains and salt lake - with enough time to take in the sights with plenty of photo ops. Lots of time on the mini bus but it’s the only way you can fit it in. Very good tour guide, really informative. Lunch was a bit long - 2 hours in Purmamarca where there isn’t much, but not much of a problem.
It is an excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and competent. The various stops were very enjoyable and scenic, perfect for picture taking. The stop in Humahuaca could have been shortened by a half hour, as the tour took over 14.5 hours as there were many police check stops that delayed our return trip to Salta.
A passionate and knowledgeable guide made the trip. The salt flats are a phenomenon. We did pick up a couple of items from quality local craft outlets. The artist at the outside stand at yours highest point has some unique pieces. I regret not buying more
