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.

The waterfall itself is nothing spectacular, so don't get too excited. The scenery en route, however, is tremendous. You'll also probably hardly see another soul when you do the walk, so it's very peaceful. This walk alone makes a visit to Tilcara worth it. Just...More

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...More
