Trek across mountainsides and along ancient Inca passes. Discover ruins and witness breathtaking views. Disconnect from the bustle of everyday life and reconnect with with the stunning natural world on this 2 day Quebrada del Toro Canyon and the Sillón del Inca trek.
You’ll begin your Sillón del Inca with a bus ride from Salta to the edge of Quebrada del Toro Canyon. Here, experience stunning rugged landscapes, an array of color, and lonely cacti dotting the mountainsides.
Today, you’ll hike along a path that was once an ancient road of the Inca Empire. Walk 12.5 kilometers surrounded by stunning views, stopping for lunch at the midway point to enjoy the outstanding view and relax. In the afternoon, you’ll begin your ascent to the panoramic El Observatorio lookout point.
El Observatorio was built by ancient inhabitants of the mountainous region to keep watch for arriving visitors — or enemies — that tried to reach the village ahead. From this timeless, lonely view point, you’ll get a singular panoramic view of the entire ravine and surrounding mountainside.
From El Observatorio, you’ll hike to the nearby ruins of Sillón del Inca where you’ll camp for the night. At Sillón del Inca, wander the outstanding ruins, walk through the mysterious Inca throne room, and admire the pristine Andes that surround you.
As you gaze across the barren landscape, you’ll be humbled by the generations of humanity that have lived and thrived in this lonely expanse. You’ll set up camp for the night near the ruins, and enjoy dinner and hot tea or coffee under star-filled skies.
The next morning, you’ll pack up camp and continue along the barren paths of Mount Golgota and Abra del Caminante stopping for lunch along the way. You’ll end the day with an easy hike to the picturesque town of Ingeniero Maury. From there, your bus will take you back to Salta.
