Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This lovely short trekking leads you to Garganta del Diablo.
A nice waterfall at the end of a nice path full of colours and tiny stream.
Cactus and blue sky were my guides.
In January in this part of Jujuy you will be able to be in T shirt and put a sweatshirt by night.
Is a really easy and nice trekking to do.
It will take you half and hour/ 45 minutes if you make it fast.

It's about an 1h15 to walk up along the trail (follow the arrow that says 4km), a few steep sections, but mostly a gradual climb with great views, especially on the way down. It's mostly in the shade in the morning. I spent about an hour walking up to waterfall and the narrow trails through the canyon once I got there. 10 pesos to get in. Beautiful spot that's worth the effort, especially the extra little walk up the canyon to the waterfall.

Straightforward path with a height gain of around 1,000 feet. You have to go down to the ravine for the waterfall, after paying 15 pesos. Great views.

Best to do in the morning before the wind gets up.

Note we are veteran walkers.

It's a nice place to visit when in Tilcara, but I would go crazy over it. You drive about half an hour through a narrow (mostly single lane), twisty and uphill road up the side of a mountain, then park and walk for about 20 minutes to get to the waterfall.
It's a nice place but it's nothing too crazy, if you are short of time you are better of visiting some other places (the Pucara, Hill of Seven Colors or even better, the Hornocal)

We parked at the edge of town and hiked up a hot dusty path (to be expected since we started a bit late). At about 3.8 km, you hit the road that othesr use to drive to the same spot. Then at 4 km, there is a small entrance fee kiosk because the site is owned by indigenous people who promote it for tourism. Then you walk down a steep, short path to a lookout over a very narrow canyon--the devil's throat. If you've never see a deep narrow chasm, maybe it would be unique. Then you walk about 15 minutes along a stream to a small waterfall. And back up the steep, short path.
Since other hiking in the area seems to need a guide (no maps, no signs, no real trails), this is a good option for a self-directed trip.

We enjoyed the walk starting from our hotel in town. We started early and did not see anyone until we came down. A dog joined greeted us where the trail leaves the road and about half way up joined for the hike to the waterfall. The hike up was as enjoyable as the falls and la garganta del diablo. The creek is fairly small, so the falls above the garganta del diablo was not much. But the gorge carved by it was impressive, as was the walk along the aqueduct. I think it took us about 3 hours roundtrip.

Stunning land formation! Anyone in the area should stop by! It´s the perfect spot for some awesome photos, and, like in most places around there, you can buy some cool cheap souveniers made by the locals!

The throat is amazing. Only 7km from Tilcara town. A very peaceful place. Set in the middle of a mountain range. Highly recommended.

Energia increible. Solo 7km de Tilcara. Es un lugar muy pacifico y tranquilo. Un sitio en el medio de una montana. Es altamente recomendable.

You can also come here by car, but I advice you to do the whole hike and not the last 100 meters. In the beginning it is will go up rapidly but after a while it will become flatter. Make sure you have enough water with you. You cannot buy water on route.
The strange thing is that up there, you will find a bathroom with toilet paper and runing water. Ontheffing end you see a small waterfall. The Lonley planet mentioned here go for a swim but the locals prefers that you do not do this. They depend on this water.

This attraction is 7 km away from Tilcara town. The walk is very easy and you can have a great view to the Andes Cordillera. The Huasamayo river has carved the rock giving a "throat" aspect.

I visited in August 2008
