Highlights

 
     

    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!

    If you are looking for more ways to enjoy the beautiful northwest of Argentina, I offer a 4-day hiking trip on Calilegua National Park. Be sure to check it out.

    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.

    What People are Saying about David A. Torres

     

    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.
