    From the viewpoint around Iruya is see, the road is very steep but worth it, there is very windy up there but go to Iruya not refrain from doing so.

    The climb is short but demanding. It goes to the end of the village, where is the Hotel Iruya to climb along a safe path. The view from the top is magnificent seen around Iruya and surroundings.

    He is accessed from the village, the walk is short but steep. It can be easily taking the time that each one requires to retrieve air. Must-see (can be reached by car but it's worth the walk)
