The Quebrada is an arid area of scenic beauty and rich in cultural heritage. The people of the Quebrada are a combination of history and traditions with ancestral roots. It is a unique cultural landscape in the world, since the Indian peoples of the area preserve religious beliefs, rites, festivals, art, music and agricultural techniques that are a living heritage, an important reason for it to be declared Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2003.
All year round it is possible to do all the explorations, but the climatic conditions make the cool and dry winter the best time to visit this area. The summer is the rainy season.
The altitude of the valley varies between 1,600 and 4,500 meters above sea level.
The gorge was the scene of different ancestral cultures ten thousand years old, one of those cultures was the “Omaguacas”, who gave the place its name. “Humahuaca” can be translated as “Sacred River”. In the Quebrada de Humahuaca, there still exist the descendants of the ancient settlers, called ” Pueblos originarios”.
The climate is semi-desert, dry, arid, and windy, it rains more in the summer afternoons and has a very marked thermal amplitude with night frosts and days with a warm sun and temperatures that can exceed 30° C. Winter in the Quebrada is characterized by being very cold (records indicate an average minimum temperature of 4° C) and dry.
