"IRUYA : END OF THE ROAD" Argentina Off The Beaten Path Tip by swesn
Argentina Off The Beaten Path: 112 reviews and 108 photos
Even more remote, is tiny Iruya. This is a gorgeous little village wedged on a hillside. There is only one unpaved road that leads to it from Iturbe. From Humahuaca, it is 66 km away. There is one daily bus and after about 1.5 to 2 hours, the same bus returns to Humahuaca.
The village really has an end-of-the-road feel as the one road ends right in front of the church and surrounding the village are cliffs and mountains.
The road reaches over 4000m at one point at Abra del Condor where there is a huge Pacha Mama (Mother Earth) shrine. Then, it drops steeply into Quebrada de Iruya with, once again, tremendously astounding views.
