Quebrada de Humahuaca is a majestic valley in the argentinean province of Jujuy, at the north part of the country. Let me show you its most impressive parts on this 3-day horseback riding trip.

On this journey we will explore this marvellous mountainous valley. We’ll get to admire the Puna’s plateau that surround it. And we’ll learn about the great cultural significance this places holds. Quebrada de Humahuaca is representative of the wonderful valleys in the South Andes. So, by exploring it we’ll get the chance to peek into the Andean magical world.

Moreover, it served as a major trade route over the past 10,000 years. Hence, there are vestiges of settlements all throughout the valley. Even today, it is a crucial path for transportation and connectivity between the different towns, from the plains to the highlands of the Andes.

Allow me to guide you across this dazzling place, and show you some of my favorite spots. We’ll depart from Caballos towards Huacalera. Then, we’ll pass by the Valleys of Loma Larga, Molulo, Huaiahuasi and Molulo. Each one guards its own secrets and incredible places to discover.

Our journey will take 3 days and 2 nights, crossing the mountain range that separates the Quebrada de Humahuaca and the Valleys. We’ll also reach archaeological pre-incan sites, right at the feet of the mountains. Plus, we’ll admire the most hypnotizing sceneries on our 6-7 hours per day riding.

Don’t miss out this great opportunity to discover one of the most breathtaking places in Argentina. Request to book this trip and follow me on this horseback riding adventure across Quebrada de Humahuaca.

When guiding, my objective is to provide confidence and safety to my clients, and by the end of the trip to say goodbye as friends.

At grand tolar david left me at gave me a local guide lorenzo also only speaking spanish but really nice and peacefull and great Guy by the way. But david said he has problems so he had to go. When i got down from summit no david. So i write to him a litle angry where he was and where My stuff was and he was in a city 3 hours away.

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.

The trip was amazing. The climb especially. Not being used to horse riding it was quite exhausting but overall we were very satisfied with how the day went.
