Serranias del Hornocal, Humahuaca

5.0
#4 of 13 in Nature in Province of Jujuy
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.

    It is the best place, not-much-publicized. I recommend going by car, the road is unique, meandering, nearly all in rise so auto makes force much more subis. Handle with care, is all gravel. It feels a little height. Arriving you leave the car and walk, you come up to have it front. It is impeccable. I think that always much the wind blows

    It also known as the Mount of 14 colors. If one is in the area, you should not miss this gift of nature. On the outskirts of Humahuaca out vans constantly leading people at affordable price. Once there I have to pay an entry, cheap. Many tours they do is arrive and give people 30, 40 minutes before returning. Time is little if one intends to make the way to the tip where a river can be seen, the Hill more closely and return to the meeting point. You should consider height, physical condition, and the slope. More advisable to go time is at noon because the position of the Sun stands out more colors. I recommend take shelter because above it makes cold and candy by the height. Coca candies are particularly useful for those suffering from the height.

    Don't forget to learn this wonderful place of the Quebrada de Humahuaca is located 27 kms from Humahuaca by a "complicated" road that ascends from the 3000 meters of Humahuaca 4350 m, takes around 70 minutes the path of ascent. We hire a 4 x 4 (brand-new Hilux) passing the bridge over the River, thence depart all trucks. They charge $300 if they are 3 passengers (as we were). The villager told me before my question that was "discovered" makes only 4 years ago settled in a nearby hill a Repeater antenna of channel 7, which therefore became the road and which initially threw miguelitos so that was not busy and several stories rather than here would be very extensive to relate. Upon arriving I decided to retrace the path (in descent) to have a better view (will drop more than 150 meters) along 500 metres approximately, but bear in mind that we must re-upload it, advice... drink mate with leaves of coca, dramamine by doubts and leaves of coca between cheek and teeth (side, without chewing and sucking them) , and in addition climbing never look to what is missing to the starting point. It is the most cute and beautiful place I've ever met in my life, don't forget to visit it.!
