The Devil's Throat, Tilcara
(4.2/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to The Devil's Throat and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Province of Jujuy vacation generator.

  • The way the throat out of the city of Tilcara ypero must take precautions by the narrow road and the time that takes to first reach the place by car. Upon arrival you pay an entry to visit the Devil's throat and the waterfall. Walk is not very suitable for people who have difficulty walking and takes a few minutes to reach the waterfall. The views are impactactante both the throat and the waterfall

  • The place is very nice to enter after going through a VERY NARROW PATH which hinders the passage of two vehicles. Gravel road on high for 30 minutes. You reach the base. There are two options a trekking to very nice waterfall and of medium difficulty, through stones and water. To arrive at a waterfall. Another attraction is the Devil's throat Qte is accessed down a few stairs and walkways. Recommended.
