  • To go to book Tourist Office, there are local guide who is in charge of bringing people to that place. A small fee is paid to the people who live there, to gain access, but it is save and it is really going. There are 2 caves, an era a nest of condors and crosses the mountain and the other is was used for hundreds of years by indigenous peoples to perform rituals. Walk to get, time is an hour or hour and a half. Amazing place!

  • We went with Luis, supet friendly local guide. After a good walk you reach both caves, cute place to meet in Tilcara.

  • We went to Tilcara almost convinced that we could not do this tour, because my daughters are small (7-10 years). We approached the Office of tourism and there met Adriana, a guide to the place that we led for only 180$ per person to the most high. It is an excursion with guide. Access to the caves is complicated, at least 4 hours of Trek in total. It must bring plenty of water and sunscreen. In the case of travelling with children, from my experience I recommend to Adriana, who was super warm from the first moment with my daughters, to take care of them and accompanied with all his love, incentivandolas to get to the end. Once in the caves, I define them scope and proposed adults down a few meters from the other side. The view is spectacular. We then had a problem linked to the fear of height, circumstances in which Adriana showed its full capacity in the management and improvement of contingencies of this kind. I advise you to go on this ride as long as there are people with reduced mobility, vertigo or any circumstance that prevents long walks. To do so, so do not hesitate.
