The Devil's Throat, Tilcara

4.2
#5 of 13 in Nature in Province of Jujuy
Trek through rugged, dry terrain to arrive at The Devil's Throat, a waterfall carved into the rocks of a deep red canyon. Don't be intimidated by the steep beginning of the roughly 7 km (4.3 mi) hike from Tilcara--once you conquer the first section, the track flattens out. After you appreciate the tumbling cascade, look out from the waterfall's base to enjoy a breathtaking view of Quebrada de Humahuaca Gorge and the soaring, icy peak behind it. Bring adequate snacks, water, and sun protection, as you might struggle to find shade during the walk.

  • Hire a taxi at Plaza de Tilcara, it is not expensive and pointless stress you along the way. Wear comfortable shoes, water, visit tranqui, many stones, easy to stumble and fall, so take 1 hour and do this tranqui. Reach the waterfall is the prize.

  • Walk very simpatica, Canyon and waterfall. Very good with kids who walk well. Hayun entry price of 20 pesos, down to the river is not very difficult, and in an hour and a half, you can visit the canyon and go to the waterfall. Very cute and good exercise. You can go to auto - 7 km of gravel-throat, or walk (a little more than 2 hours to the entrance of the canyon)
