The walk leaves from Tilcara town and is sign posted from Puente Tilcara and Av Huasamaya. The sign says 4km, think it may be a little shorter. Track is well formed and has signs at junctions. A small place sells drinks on the way up....More

This is a great half day activity. The walk from town is uphill and 4km. You get lovely views of the surrounding hills, cacti etc. Once you arrive you pay 30 pesos to go in to the actual devils throat area and walk up river...More
