The full version of trekking begins at the foot of Mount Golgota in Ingeniero Maury and ends four days later in Quebrada de San Lorenzo, right next to Salta city. The full itinerary takes us along an old Inca trail amid landscapes of great contrasts. The first part of the tour takes place in a dry and arid climate. During the final part we´ll enter the rainforests of Salta’s Yunga.
Along the route we will be in contact with nature and the culture of a particular area of Salta. Starting at the Quebrada del Toro, our first ascent will be surrounded by cardones(giant cactus) and will reveal the snowy peaks of Cerro San Miguel and Acay.
The trail leads to visit ruins of what one was the southern part of the Inca empire in the archaeological site of “Sillon del Inca” (Inca Seat). We continue the trip by visiting the local inhabitants of the area, who work their fields and breed their livestock over 3,000 meters high. Camping sites and dinners will be the time to share moments with the group and sometimes with local inhabitants when we camp near their homes at night.
It is worth mentioning the quality of the meals being included and the organization of camping sites. We want to walk together on the mountain, but then enjoy comfortable camps. Therefore we strive to provide quality service in both the variety and choice of menus, snacks, breakfasts and food offered. Also by the equipment that we provide in the camps. No eating on the floor or inside the tents. Our camps include a dining tent, tables, benches, cutlery and tableware. And a glass of wine each night to foster fellowship and relaxation in the mountains.
