Argentina: The Andes Road

The North West is rich in history and has the most abrupt changes of climate and landscape in the country. The Andes road extended from Lima to Buenos Aires and on our journey we travelled from Salta to Jujuy and Humahuaca. Climbing up to 9,000 feet we pass the striking Hill of the Seven Colours, stop to explore the Rio Grande, the Quebrada, visit the old adobe church of Santa Rosa in the Purmamarca, and the Posta de Hornillos, one of a chain of inns that was built during Viceregal times. It was also an opportunity to meet people who are descended from the earliest civilizations and who have made these remote areas of the Andes their home.
