Perhaps one of the plus invites to these exploration and travel is to know a different culture while enjoying magnificent landscapes, some say that the spectacular landscapes that are without the people who live there seem incomplete.

The Argentine North is a region to meet on several trips. You can take advantage of knowing the traditional cards, but do not forget that you can go back several times to meet the other Puna and other proposals:

There are several hidden villages to learn as the people called Abdon Castro Tolay, even by locals is best known as Barrancas, referring to geography close a Municipal Archaeological Reserve covering a striking canyon formed by the river of the same name. There you can see a lot of petroglyphs and rock paintings over a thousand. The tour invites see vicunas, pastors and adobe houses. You can also see llamas, orchards corn and potatoes.
