  • It is a place with incredible scenery, waterfalls are very nice and you can get into any of them. But is a place complicated and is necessary that have a State physical and a footwear suitable for to get to know all them waterfalls since is a tour in which going to climb and walk much. Not us was easy reach to the seventh waterfall, is a tour of some 4 hours more or less. It is recommended to go with guides to gain access to the falls, usually at the base of the hill there are a Diaguita community that make you guide. But that influences much at the time of making the tour, to us us play Lucas and the truth that not us liked for nothing. It was a nice person but it led to extremely complicated places, much of one safety no matter you, rather I was road and you follow me. Not you helped in anything, just walked (and sometimes quite fast) and one should follow it. I recommend that they do so because it is a place not to be missed, no matter until waterfall are all beautiful. But if you advise that if your guide is Lucas to avoid or prepare for travel.

  • We went by car to the base. 1 km before get us stopped a group of guys that apparently wanted to "primeriar" to which is found in the base of the Hill of the excursion. Us wanted to convince that starting from there began the excursion, that not had another form of get and that us charged $40 by waterfall (are 7 waterfalls and them charge individually if not complete all you charge only which you see). It turned out to be that instinctively we decided to continue with the auto to the base because it seemed weird that it began 1 km before and there is no one on the base. There is a community, parking lots, and several guides on the basis that charge $30 per cascade ($10 less than the former). Don't be fooled by the group that you want to primeriar. Having said that I think is important since it is an attempt at deception, the tour is beautiful. Hard some 4 or 5 hours (maybe more depending on the time). It did with Ezekiel, a guide of 12 years super friendly and that we helped much. We went the hard way. Is dangerous and highly difficult. Not recommended for people with little physical state, vertigo, and fear. There are cliffs and cliffs. You can go by the road easy, our back was by that. I know that many people asked the Guide go the not difficult way to the ida. We went to the 7 waterfalls. Worth, but you have to be prepared: good shoes (borcegos are ideal), plenty of water, long guard, caps and clothing line. Not recommend for anything go without a guide, nothing is marked and is very easy to get lost or hurt themselves badly.

  • Unimaginable that there is a place so in Cafayate, visit it several times and never knew of its existence until this year. The truth very recommended, costs a little climb and is requires a State atletico half but nor is something very difficult. The guides excellent
