The Quebrada de Humahuaca is an about 150 kilometres long mountain valley and ravine in the Jujuy province of northwestern Argentina.
It’s famous for its multi-coloured landscape. Each colour is the result of a different layer of sediments deposited over millions of years. Successive tectonic plate movements gave them the shapes we see today. In 2003, the Quebrada de Humahuaca was declared as an UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Landscape category.
