Quebrada de Humahuaca, Humahuaca

4.8
#1 of 15 in Scenic Drive 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 Humahuaca route builder site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I was amazed by the landscapes of our Argentine North. It is a unique route in the world, at every curve and against curve appear an incredible range of terrun colors.

  • While since Salta is a 12-hour walk, it is beautiful. Purmamarca, Tilcar, Volcan everything is exotic. There's a big Quechua influence. It is important to try the local meals. See the hill of the 7 colors

  • 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.
