Ominous road signs - Pass on the dirt road to Iruya (Argentina)

Iruya is a beautiful but very remote village in Northern Argentina.­ The dirt road that reaches the village is about 50Km long.­ It fords several rivers and goes over a 4000 meter pass.­ Iruya is reachable daily by local bus from Humahuaca (unless rain makes the road impassable).­

This road can be done with a regular car at the dry season only, since there is several rivers to ford.­ As soon as it rains in the region, the rivers will become impassable unless you have 4x4 (4WD).­
