Serranias del Hornocal, Humahuaca

5.0
#3 of 42 in Sightseeing in Province of Jujuy
Landmark Tourist Spot
Off the beaten track, and all the more rewarding for it, Serranias del Hornocal represent a geological formation that makes a real impression on the landscape. The limestone hills display an attractive range of colors in streaked "v" shapes, creating a memorable visual effect that photographs well. Located an hour's drive from Humahuaca, the hills remain undiscovered by foreign tourists and reward those who do visit with an atmosphere of remoteness rarely felt in urbanized areas. By using our Province of Jujuy vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Serranias del Hornocal and other attractions in Province of Jujuy.
