|......waterfalls. 25-30 meters height...very refreshing|

Those were some typical street-level pics. For something extraordinary, you need to go a bit higher....to the mountain-top just across.

|....but you get this jaw-dropping view. I wish I had a 21mm lens|
|Iruya: A well hidden remote village. Buses get there once a day.|
|Iruya is built exactly at the intersection of two canyons|
|homework time :)|
