The Tuzgle Volcano is a stratovolcano located in the Puna de Atacama in Argentina, more precisely in the department of Susques in the province of Jujuy, near the border with Salta.
What I am offering you is a non-technical program of 4 days across a stunning trail in the Quebrada de Humahuaca and Puna de Atacama. Its easy ascent will allow you to discover the solitude of the northern plateau of Argentina and, of course, its incomparable colors.
Here you have an estimated itinerary of this 4-day trekking expedition up to The Tuzgle Volcano:
DAY 1: STARTING POINT
We leave Jujuy and go to the base of Cerro Negro by transfer. From there, we will start our first hike up to this hill at 3.600 meters. Then, we descend to Tilcara (2.450m) where we will spend the night in a Hotel.
DAY 2: MORE TREKKING
During this acclimatization day, we will trek to Cerro Morado for about 3 hours reaching an altitude of 4.550 meters. We will also visit Salinas Grandes, an imposing salt mine. Then, we will spend the night in a hotel in San Antonio de los Cobres.
DAY 3: SAN GERONIMO VOLCANO
It is another acclimatization trek to the San Gerónimo Volcano at 4.950 meters. This hike will take us approximately 3 hours. Night in San Antonio de los Cobres again.
DAY 4: SUMMIT!
Trekking and ascent to the Tuzgle Volcano summit with a magnificent sight of the entire Argentine Puna. Then, we will take a ride in the Tren de las nubes (“Train to the clouds”) and finally, we will be taken to Jujuy by a 4×4. End of our services.

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 had a mindblown experience riding in the mountains for 3 days in Juyjuy, or should I say horseback mountain climbing. I do have previous experience with horseback riding, but I have never done anything compared to this. Mesmerizing views, primitive overnight stays and food in the nature. I was also allowed to book very last minute, resulting in me being alone in the mountains with a guide. This tour is an experience that I will take with me fondly for life. My communication with David was good. My guide on the journey, Gonzalo, was very shy and timid. He only answered questions and did not explain to me the areas we were riding through. Something that I would have appreciated. This is also a very Argentinian experience in the sense that they sent an itinerary that was not exactly followed, and they were not punctual on time. If you have a relaxed view upon things like these, you will have an amazing time. Living here, I have come to learn that this is very Argentinian, so you also get a cultural experience. On the plus side, here, everything has a solution. The only thing, as an urbanized European, I would have highly appreciated, is that they bring a satellite telephone (mentioned in the itinerary) and a primitive first aid kit (mentioned during the briefing), that they did not. I do understand that they know these mountains like the back of their hands. But I do not, if something would have happened. I did feel safe during the tour. All in all, I highly recommend this tour, while ensuring that important things to me are brought on the trip.
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.
