Originally inhabitted by the Omaguaca indians, the Humahuaca Ravine was declared World Heritage in the category of Natural Landscapes, in 2003. Located at the Northern Region, in the province of Jujuy, this ravine spreads over 105 miles of steep slope from North to South, at both sides of the Río Grande basin. It is a geographic bond between the valleys and the Puna and it is surrounded by high hills. Comprised by the departments of Tumbaya, Tilcara and Humahuaca, it shelters small towns like Reyes, Yala, Lozano, León, Volcán, Tumbaya, Purmamarca, Hornillos, Maimará, Tilcara, Juella, Huacalera, Uquía and Humahuaca. Villages of narrow roads, mud houses and white chapels; sunny mornings, silent siesta-afternoons and starry nights; windy days, fresh summers and warm winters; lands of ancestral beliefs, cheerful celebrations, millenarian arts, melancholic music, exceptional flavors and multiple colors. A place where natural imposing attractions merge with the mystics of its people and culture. The Ravine, magical and charming.
