Seven Magic Mountains were created by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone. These seven colorful boulders are a creative expression of humans in the desert – bright and colorful in a desolate background.

Constructed in 2016, the temporary installation was only supposed to last for two years but has been extended due to its popularity.

Best Time to Visit

You can really visit this unique art installation any time of year.

Summer months will likely bring in thousands of tourists so try to visit during the off-season. If you do visit during peak travel times, arrive early in the morning to avoid crowds.

Something I didn’t think about during my visit was the DUST and WIND. You will be very dirty after leaving, so make sure you are prepared and don’t have to attend a fancy dinner afterward. You’ll want to go back to your hotel and wash up before doing anything else.

The Seven Magic Mountains were scheduled to be taken down at the end of 2021, but due to the mass popularity, it’s extended until 2026!
