Waterfall Garganta Del Diablo, Tilcara

4.2
Trek through rugged, dry terrain to arrive at Waterfall Garganta Del Diablo, 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.

  • Going from the city of Tilcara, before crossing the bridge that takes you to Pucará, there is a road to the left, from there there are about 8 km uphill, by gravel road and cornice, we went by car, I think there is also the option to do it walking by ot it's kind of 4 km. Once above you pay $50 per person, and you walk down to a glen where there are two waterfalls and run a river that you have to draw over some stones. The scenery is very nice, worth doing. Access is enabled until 18 hours. It is not recommended for people with motor disabilities to descend to the canyon.
