Experiencing Magic in the Desert at Seven Magic Mountains in Las Vegas, Nevada

Just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada lies a whimsical art installation called Seven Magic Mountains. Like something out of Alice in Wonderland, these 7 pillars of rainbow colored rocks stand out amongst their desert landscape and have become a major point of interest for those coming and going from the city.

Unfortunately, the art installation is not permanent. If this is on your must-see list, you should start planning a trip to Vegas in the near future. Here’s everything you need to know to experience magic on your trip to Seven Magic Mountains:

What is Seven Magic Mountains?

Seven Magic Mountains is a sculpture installation by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone. Each totem is 30-35 feet high and each boulder is locally sourced and painted. It’s been up for a little over a year now and is only scheduled to stay up for 2 years total. Those wishing to see the exhibit have until May 11, 2018, so act fast!

Is there any cost to enter?

Seven Magic Mountains

None! This is a public art installation so admission is my favorite price–free. There’s also free parking nearby so you can easily walk to the site. No money needed, just your camera.

Know before you go

It is really windy here, with a lot of sand and dust blowing around. Be sure to bring sunglasses and be careful with your professional camera lenses. There are no restrooms, food or water on the premises so plan accordingly.

This makes a great photo stop on a West Coast road trip in case you want to see some other national parks in the area. See it while you can and experience the magic for yourself! Till next time, safe travels.

    That’s a great way to showcase art! Do they put a new art exhibit up after the two years?

    Love how vivid the colors are even if the “mountains” are out in the windy/dusty environment!!

    That’s a really cool art installation. I love how the colours throw a sharp contrast to the landscape. Psychedelic. 🙂

    Wow this is so cool. I really like these different art installations. Perhaps I’ll venture out to that area sometime before this is gone. At least I hope so.

    Thats a simple and nice post. What really got me wss the reference to Alice in Wonderland having larger than life items. Any reason this sculpture was made and that too in the middle of nowhere?

      I think it was just to put something amazing in an unintended place. Art always tries to keep you guessing haha, so glad you liked the post!

    This looks so awesome, the striking vivid (jhatak) that’s psycadellic against the subtle bkdrop. From indi it might be difficult to plan a trip so so soon again to the west coast. I was just there April this year… aaah missed this. Also does something new come every 2 years. And aah thanks for sharing 🙂
