    To make this Trek must be approaching the office of tourism, that is 1 block from the terminal, and request a guide, can not be only since you can lose, it is quite complicated to reach the caves, because it is a path long and between stones, I recommend to bring good shoes and plenty of sunscreen. You pay a small sum to the guide who is a person in the community of the place. The reach caves have a view great village, is a place of full peace of mind. The caves have their complicated part in one of them you have to spend almost lying down to get to the other side. They were generally used as shelters. It is a good choice for those who like trekking. Delay between 3 and 4 hours, depending on the step where you are going and the time they stay in caves.

    Here are several points to keep in mind: 1. is essential to make the tour with the people in the community of the place. His position is at the entrance of Tilcara. Many sell this tour but the entrance is through the community so it can live not to go with them violent situations. 2. There are a few legal owners of the land not belonging to the original community so it can happen that making the excursion they must stop it and withdraw from the area. 3. do not recommend to do it alone because they can be lost. 4 it is a journey that requires good physical condition. It is a slope, walking over a dry river, is on the rocks. At times the mountain leans on super narrow roads. 5 carry whether sunscreen, hat and water in quantity. It is not an expensive excursion, honestly not is if worth much. Obviously when you get one looks over the head by the cave and has a privileged view of the place but involves much time and effort. Maybe that I like most of all is the exploitation of the Guide on the culture and customs of the community.
