I want to invite you to a great guided trek in Tilcara, to Cerro Negro (3500 m), in the amazing Quebrada de Humahuaca, northwest of Argentina!

We’ll start our hike in Tilcara (2465 m), a picturesque city of the Jujuy province. The town is located in the centre of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This is a program without any technical difficulty. However, you should consider some important points. The trek will take us about 7 to 8 hours and we’ll walk about 10 kilometres. Besides, we’ll face some slight ascents and descents. Finally, you should carry a small backpack with 2 litres of water and some food.

From Tilcara, I’ll take you to the foot of the Cerro Negro and gradually we’ll hike up. We’ll enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the Quebrada and go through the Garganta del Diablo (the Devil’s Throat). It’s an amazing canyon that leads to a waterfall, at 2900 metres.

The trek continues uphill to Cerro Negro. It will take us about 3 hours to reach the summit. A spectacular view of the Quebrada and Tilcara awaits for us at the top of the hill. Then, we’ll start the descent. It will take us another 3 hours.

I organize daily departures, so contact me if you have any questions about this trek in Tilcara. Come and discover the special beauty of the amazing Quebrada de Huamahuaca! I also have a 5-day program trek, from Tilcara to Calilegua. You shouldn’t miss it if you have more time in the area!

About the guide

AAGM Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I was born in Catamarca province, land of 6000m peaks (los seismiles), such as Pissis and Ojos del Salado.

I now live in Tilcara, Jujuy, located in the 'Quebrada de Humahuaca' a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I guide mountaineering, trekking, horse riding and multi adventure trips in Argentina's North and North-West region.

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.
