It may seem to you that these are pictures of extraterrestrial landscapes, but in fact this place is located on our planet. You are looking at the narrow mountainous valley of Quebrada de Humahuaca in Argentina. These colored mountains of Serranha del Aguarage are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in the province of Jujuy, sprawling over 154 kilometers of vibrant geological wonders. The valley is very popular and appreciated by tourists, but there is one area that most visitors don’t usually notice. This is the colorful Serranha del Aguarage mountain range, locally called the Hornocal.
If you look closely, you can count 11 different colors on these beautiful zigzag slopes. Carefully layered, these colors are due to different mineral compositions. If you want to appreciate their beauty to the fullest, it’s best to do so from the neighboring grassy hill. From here you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the entire mountain range. Photos of Serranha del Aguarage fascinate with their beauty — this is a truly amazing place.
