The Devil's Throat, Tilcara

4.2
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. Take a look at our Province of Jujuy trip planner to schedule your visit to The Devil's Throat and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • It is simple to get to the Devil's throat. Bring water. Take into account the changes of climate, comfortable but not flip flops footwear. And get ready to see the secrets of the Gorge. There are more that are not listed in any guide. Crossing streams you can find some Canyon with a type playing the quena far away. You will feel it as if it were two metres.

  • The four kilometers after there are two options: the cascata and throat itself. Both are bellisismas options if you like walking, nature and outdoor activities.

  • The walk is not complicated, nor is very long! And the totally natural waterfall is worth! Bring water to take and go lightweight luggage!
