Type of Trip



  • Explore the Garganta del Diablo, a paradise in northern Argentina

  • Enjoy an extraordinaire horseback riding day in Tilcara, Jujuy

  • Get the best views of the Quebrada de Humahuaca

The Garganta del Diablo is a magnificent rocky formation, approximately 7 kilometers outside of the city of Tilcara.  It is one of the most iconic places in Jujuy, in the northern part of Argentina. And horseback riding is one of the best ways to explore this magical place.

We’ll ride through this fantastic gorge that the Huassamayo river created to forge its way through the rocks. Also, from the Garganta del Diablo, we’ll enjoy mesmerizing views of Quebrada de Humahuaca and Nevado del Chañi. Moreover, it is a privileged place to spot different birds that overfly the area. And it has a marvellous waterfall of over 15 meters of height!

On our trip, we’ll depart from the barrio de Chicapa at around 2,450 meters. Thereupon our adventure begins, ascending to 2,950 meters, by a 7 kilometers road that progressively gets steeper. Then, we’ll reach a dazzling view spot, where we will get hypnotizing sceneries of the town and the Quebrada.

After that, we’ll follow our path until we reach an area in which we’ll be able to appreciate the depth of the gorge at the Garganta del Diablo. Here, we’ll take a short hike of 30 minutes approximately, descending to the Huasamayo river and heading towards the cascade. And, if the weather allows it, we can even go for a quick and refreshing swim.

Later, we’ll return through a trail that surrounds Cerro Negro. Finally, we’ll descend returning to the streets of Tilcara.

If you want to join this horseback riding adventure across the Garganta del Diablo in Tilcara, Jujuy, don’t hesitate and request to book this trip. It would be my pleasure to guide you through this majestic place.
