Enjoy the unforgettable trail of the clouds in Argentina leaving from the beautiful town of Tilcara, Jujuy with David, a certified mountain guide.
This 3-day hike across the Trail of the clouds is a trip full of strong sensations: effort, tiredness and the amazing landscapes with opposite features. You will also enjoy the contact with mountain people, bad and good weather, cold and hot temperatures, the clouds and the satisfaction of fulfilling the challenge.
It is a hiking adventure for those with a good physical training that are capable of supporting an average of 6 to 8 hours of walking in the mountains, with a altitude change of more than 900 meters.
During these 3 days on the Trail of the clouds you will discover, the beautiful Quebrada de Humahuaca, Yuto Pampa, the Huairahuasi valleys, Chiquerito, Quebrada Amarilla, Xixi Lera and many other wonderful places.
I suggest to have previous mountain hike and wild camp experience and knowledge. It will be an experience full of landscape changes and flora, in a constant connection with nature. We’ll meet at the Tilcara bus station to begin our trip. Below, you can find a detailed description of the itinerary.
It will be a really exciting hike you cannot miss. For more information, prices and booking please contact me or send me a message. I will be waiting for your decision of living this wonderful guided expedition in the trail of the clouds!

I dont know where to start. But david do not speak english, as he said and lupe from explore and share said he did. But I was thinking okay ill get to practice My spanish. But we had some trouble in communication. And there was some bad communication between david and Explorer and share so i did not get the expedition i bought. I paid My self for 3 days at hostels and hotels althoug it was included also 100 dollars extra for base camp at llullaillaco. 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. But he got me some transport to him and ill ended up paying for My hotel there to. Now to the good things. The expedition where beutyfull. And david know whats good for you i got good aklimatation and most places where absolutely stunning. Will i recomend david. Probely not. Unless you speak spanish and make sure everthing is sorte out and no misunderstandings.
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.
