Quebrada de Humahuaca, Humahuaca

4.8
#1 of 57 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.

    Visiting Jujuy decided to stop in Purmamarca and go across the Gorge, do not stop to impress you by the scenery and culture of the area, without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in our country.

    It is incredible to be able to enjoy the colors of the Gorge. It seems impossible to be able to appreciate all the natural colours that are seen in the mountains. Highly recommended.

    The colours and the thousand shades of Qeubrada de Humahuaca they conquered and never a photograph will pay tribute to these infinite spaces for those in search of freedom and pristine environments, increasingly rare in Europe and especially in Italy. The Board stays and in stages to settle even at heights and to breathe the pure air that our Lombardy has more. The Summit will turn to Hornocal, but for those who are bothered by excessive Tourism Council the tranquil and spotless town in Humahuaca. Support local cooperatives and buy your souvenirs not in the usual stalls full of mass produced, but in places that expose the brand Frair Trade or at the premises of the native community, you will find goods of higher quality and workmanship really colorful wool, with craft knife.
