Travel the valley to see eye-catching rock formations of differing, vibrant colors at Valle Arcoiris. Pathways trail through the valley, offering you views of various rock structures on and around the mountain. Due to mineral deposits in the soil, the rocks hold clearly defined color variations, so the mountainprojects a rainbow-like appearance. Take a tour or rent a car to visit this natural attraction. If you would like to have the area to yourself, visit during the afternoon when the site has the fewest tourists. There are no restrooms in the area, and you will need to take your own food and water with you.

On the way to valley it is possible to see wild animals as donkeys, vicunhas. It's a tour super rich in natural beauties. Admission costs $3000,000 pesos and on site there is no infrastructure, only in Yerbas buenas, where petroglyphs exist.

We went 4x4 with two more couples (I think we gave luck, because the other tours were made in a van with about 15 - 20 people). Throughout the route, our guide was telling us a little bit of the history of the region... a privilege! The Rainbow Valley is 3,500 m high, higher than the city of San Pedro. It is a set of mountainous formations of expressive colors due to the high concentration of minerals in the rocks. It's really beautiful! After a short walk around the place, which was empty and quiet (without any other large group or excursions), we had a delicious breakfast prepared by Giovani himself.
