The Seven Magic Mountains is an art installation located in the Nevada desert, just a short 25-minute drive from the Vegas strip.
Here is everything you need to know about visiting the Seven Magic Mountains.
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, try arriving 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 will want to go back to your hotel and wash up before doing anything else.
The Seven Magic Mountains are currently scheduled to be taken down at the end of 2021, so you will want to plan your trip before then,
