Hornocal: Tour of the 14 Colors Mountain & Humahuaca´s Gorge

1. Hornocal: Tour of the 14 Colors Mountain & Humahuaca´s Gorge

Embark on an adventure that will take you through striking landscapes and scenic villages. The tour commences as you travel to Purmamarca village which rests at the base of the Seven Colors Hill, a stunning multi-hued mountain. Journey to Maimará, a small village nestled in the shadow of the Monolith Painter’s Palette. Admire the stunning red, yellow, orange, and pastel hues of the Monolith. Visit Pucará de Tilcara, a fort built in the 12th-century by the Omaguaca tribe who were later conquered by the Incas. Stop in the sleepy town of Uquía, which is notable for its historic church which boasts paintings of gun-toting angels. Pause at the Tropic of Capricornio, the most southerly latitude at which the sun can appear directly overhead at noon. Enjoy a short visit to Humahuaca's town en route to the main destination - the 14 colours mountain of Hornocal. In Humahuaca you will switch from your van or bus and hop into a 4x4 all-terrain vehicle as you travel to Hornocal. Hornocal is part of the calcareous formation called Yacoraite that extends from the province of Salta, crossing the Quebrada de Humahuaca and then the Bolivian Altiplano to Peru. Upon your return, you will meet up with the rest of your group.

Different landscapes are appreciated that contrast with each other. Excursion and guide highly recommended. I would do it again. The next time I would like to stay in Purmamarca so that I can better explore the town. Dreamlike.

A very long excursion by minibus but with incredible landscapes, the top of the top is the 4x4 climb at 4350m to admire the mountain with 14 colors, really sublime. Otherwise good organization and good time management.

The landscapes are very beautiful and especially the guide Roberto who knew how to make this trip a unique experience. The truth is highly recommended!

Excellent experience, very good explanation from the guide, he gave us all the information and a very good representation of Salta and Jujuy.

The guide and the circuit were excellent, always very cool and with a good disposition towards the people who were on top of the minibus ...
