Quebrada de Humahuaca, Humahuaca

4.8
#1 of 83 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.

  • Not to be missed visit this part of the country. It has amazing views! Preferable to traverse it by car to make their own way, since it has many things to see, stop and continue.

  • The experience of being among the colorful hills of the province of Humahuaca is unforgettable. Small and bucolic, the village attracts hundreds of tourists by the peculiarity of colors formed by Rocky minerals. Worth venturing out and meet this geographic treasure that is the Quebrada de Humahuaca.

  • Fantastic views!
  • This is one of the most beautiful natural sceneries in the world. The drive to Hornocal is a bit long and uncomfortable (unpaved road for 20km) but the view of the "cierro de los 14 colores" is all worth it (picture attached). Absolutely stunning, a must see if you are in the area.
  • Beautiful place. All Argentine must-see. The colors of the hills are precious and exquisite gastronomy

  • Beautiful monument with wide staircase. You can see a beautiful landscape from there. Usually there are craftsmen and fairs. Recommended!
