Quebrada de Humahuaca, Humahuaca

4.8
#1 of 51 in Outdoors in Northern Argentina
Feast your eyes on waves of rainbow rocks undulating down the side of mountains as you wind your way along Quebrada de Humahuaca, a scenic road linking northern Argentina to Bolivia. Ranging from beige to deep reds, rich browns, and even violet, the rocks look amazing at any time of day, as they subtly change color according to the light. Pull over and look out over Hornocal, perhaps the most vivid formation along the road, and take some memorable photos. Put Quebrada de Humahuaca into our Province of Jujuy route builder site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Very pretty but there are just parts of the quebrada that is very special to see. The rest are only mountains we could see elsewhere.

  • The hornocal is a place that is reached after a gravel with a slope road beautiful... out of humahuaca is not in good condition, but when it comes the panoramic view of a hill of 14 colors is impressive... don't miss it.

  • I was in the quebrada de Humahuaca. 180 kms. Wonderful mountains and spectacular forms. Full of energy. Imagination flies in this place. It is majestic. A gift of God to men. Really impossible stop feeling a big respect for the creator of this beautiful gorge. Its people are simple and very nice. They guide you with love for its entirety. In the town of Humahuaca, they are very helpful and there are places for accommodation and food without problems.
