Tilcara. Northern Argentina

Very late at night, after visiting Iruya, we came back to Humahuaca. All the nights in the North were really cold while at the daytime the heat of the sun was unbearable. The next morning we took a stroll down the streets of this beautiful village which still doesn’t have  a huge impact of tourism as other places in the North.

Afterwards, we took a bus to Tilcara and at mid day we were already there taking a walk in Pucara de Tilcara surrounded by dozens of huge cactuses and enjoying beautiful panorama of the village. After this two hour walk in the restored ruins of the historical village we rushed to the so called “Devils Throat”.

The views were amazing while we were climbing up the hill and they were even more astonishing while going back: the sunset was covering the fields in golden shades and leaving the huge mountains behind hiding in their own shadows. It seemed as if the air was sparkling while we were walking in this magical place filled with peace and true beauty.

Muy tarde por la noche, después de visitar Iruya, hemos regresado a Humahuaca. Todas las noches en el norte eran realmente frías, mientras que durante el día el calor del sol era insoportable. A la mañana siguiente hicimos un paseo por las calles de este hermoso pueblo que todavía no tiene un gran impacto del turismo como otros lugares del norte.

Después, tomamos un autobús a Tilcara y al medio día ya estábamos allí dando un paseo en Pucará de Tilcara rodeado de docenas de enormes cactus y disfrutando del hermoso panorama del pueblo. Después de estas dos horas de caminata en las ruinas restauradas del pueblo histórico, nos apresuramos a la llamada “Garganta del Diablo”.

Las vistas eran increíbles mientras subíamos la montaña y fueron aún más sorprendentes al volver: la puesta de sol cubría los campos en tonos dorados y dejaba atrás las enormes montañas escondidas en sus propias sombras. Parecía como si el aire centelleara mientras estábamos caminando en este lugar mágico lleno de paz y verdadera belleza.
