Argentina. Tilcara



In a transition between the desert and the jungle and crossing through 4.000 mt, we find Valles de Altura (Height Valleys), where the ancient people were able to organize self-sufficiency food based on farming terraces built in the mountains foothills, and using the catchment water that comes from top of the hills. These ancient traditions are valid today and dazzle us with their story. Nestled amidst these mythical mountains is located Iruya village.
