(see here our 2001 trip)

July 9 and 10, 2010 : Iruya - July 14 to 16 : Yavi.


The road to Iruya is reason enough to make the trip

Unlikely colors, dreamed up for the occasion...

Breathtaking quebradas...
Cliffs to drive mad any climber, even if foolhardy...



What a strange idea,
building a village
in such a steep place ?

On the road going North, shortly before Abra Pampa, do not miss the superb canyon, right along the road.


Beyond La Quiaca, at the end of a good paved road, the little village of Yavi, very well worth a visit.

Yavi is not quite as scenic as Iruya, but how quet it is ! (tourists are still rare...)
Close to Yavi, inhabited and cultivated valleys
