Cuevas de Acsibi, Seclantas

(5/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Trek to Cuevas de Acsibi to witness the caves' natural formation of rocks in a deep orange color. Expect a bit of a challenge: you'll need four-wheel drive to access the trail, and the route from the mouth of the canyon to the caves takes four hours. That said, the caves' hues of reddish orange complemented by beams of sunlight shining into the enclosure make it all worthwhile. The trail itself is a geological marvel, with changing colors, widths, and shapes as it progresses. Contact the tour guide, Fido Aban, in advance to arrange your tour.

  • Arrived to Seclantás and you asked to some people in the square on them caves and us pointed out where had that go to find out and us super recommended make it walk. The truth, had reason, we had to do it. Already from the first moment when we speak with Fido Aban tell us a little about the paseo feel total confidence and also increasingly were more the desire to make the trip. We prepare the next day and we started the adventure. We find René Aban and departed. From the minute 0 is a great adventure and you can enjoy. The landscape does not stop surprising you, you can not believe, is unique, one feels at least as much natural beauty. Nothing of all the tour had been equal without the company of René that with their explanations and their experiences you end of give way to this spectacular tour. A genius total! Always pending and with one hand and one foot to help ;) If you ask us if we would return it to do, the answer is: Yes, sure!

  • I have to say that the journey to the caves is just as interesting as the same caves, which are a small and fragile natural wonder. In the tour by the broken could spot condors, hummingbirds, vizcachas and won in freedom, in addition to others types of small birds and the landscape that is crosses not has unmatched. The family Aban not do enough for guests, although for now the facilities are not complete. The hot water is obtained with wood fire, and they will take care of you. Also of the breakfasts. Gas and pool or swimming pool facilities are projected. The proximity of Seclantás, complete the scene. It is a charming town, with excellent cuisine, I recommend the care of D. Alexander, (Inti Raimi), in which prepares, among other dishes of local cuisine in a delicious frangollo endangered. Fido Aban deserves the prosperity of their tourist activity, as it is caretaker caves, the Gorge, and the durability of all. A memory for Malevo, (the family dog).
