  • You can reach the last waterfall that worth going, hour and a half of March, quiet walk. It is worth going stopping at all the waterfalls, ideal to get heat.

  • We got on our own but he is best done with a native guide of the place. The place is magical, with mirrors of water, wild goats and beautiful flora and fauna. Back walking to the city, I recommend to visit the cave paintings at the hands of a native guide (also transmitting the wonderful story of the Diaguita calchakies).
