Calilegua National Park one day guided trek
I hired David Torres for a full-day mountain hike at least 2 months in advance. Without explanation or warning, he sent in his place a man with a recently broken ankle who uses a cane to walk! My entire day of "hiking" was a 3k slow walk on a flat trail. I have attempted to get a refund, but the company has refused to communicate with me. The replacement guide told me David had another trip at the same time as mine, and chose the other, more lucrative, trip.
This trekking is very accessible from Tilcara. From the summit you can see a large part of the Quebrada de Humahuaca. Although it does not involve great physical effort, it has a duration of 7 or 8 hours of mountain ascents and descents.
Weather and best time to visit Jujuy
The best time is summer, although keep in mind that the heat during the day is really extreme. There is a great thermal amplitude in relation to the night, when temperatures can go down about 15 degrees
Jujuy’s hiking trails follow the mountains, sometimes crossing them at more than 4000 meters of height and getting lost between streams and rivers. It’s key for you to have good physical endurance as well as to take an extra day for acclimatization.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
