    Welcome to this trekking day through the wonderful “Trail of Colors”.

    This trekking program is suitable for all level of people who want to enjoy a hike in Tilcara and Maimara. All you will need is a good physical condition.

    Although it is a hike without any technical difficulty, you should consider some important points. One of them is that the trek will take us about 4 walking hours (8 km). In addition, you must face some slight ascents and descents. Finally, each participant must load his/her own backpack with some food and water.

    I organize daily departures to Tilcara and Maimara all year round. The group size must be more than 3 participants. We’ll start the hike at 9 AM and finish it at around 3 PM.

    As for the itinerary, we will leave Tilcara in the morning following a trail towards Punta Corral. We’ll walk uphill until we reach to the 2900-meter “4th Calvary”. With some stunning views of the Quebrada de Huichaira we will cross the crevasse between Tilcara and Maimara. We’ll stop for lunch and rest.

    The trek continues in direction to the Dupont Winery, at the foot of the Paleta del Pintor (Painter’s Palette) mountain and some Chicapa’s cultivation fields. On our way back we will cross the Rio Grande (river) several times to reach Tilcara again. The program ends once you’re at your hotel.

      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.

      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.
