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...More

The walk is nice and short if you reach the parking by car, otherwise you can walk up by 4 km from Tilcara (mostly through a separate pathway). The troath is short and not very impressive, while the small waterfall at the end of the...More

Nice panoramic car route to arrive to the beginning of the throat. You can do it also by foot o by horse. You overview all over Tilcara. Then you have to go down an walk for 15 minutes to arrive to the throat.
