What you'll do

As a native guide of Purmamarca I have the initiative to make you discover new landscapes around the town. The hike is not complicated or anything like that, but a pleasant journey through the bed of a dry river, where we will enjoy a colorful landscape with geoforms and cardons. Later space will become more striking, when the stage is transformed into a mud labyrinth, with vertical walls over 40 meters high. Vertical and horizontal lines will lead us to imagine the geological processes of the last 4 million years. Suddenly we will enter a narrow where we will appreciate a cave product of the internal forces of the earth's crust. There will be time to talk about the Andean worldview. The road continues along the riverbed to start discovering the native vegetation, which is part of our medicine and natural food. The tour will always be through spaces with easy accessibility, we will avoid the unnecessary risks of looking out over the cliffs. In this way we will reach the middle part of the mountain to enjoy beautiful landscapes at more than 2600 mts/asl.

Aniacho

I am Aniacho, Tourism Guide of the province of Jujuy. On this occasion I invite you to discover landscapes of Purmamarca walking along paths of low difficulty. We will walk enjoying beautiful landscapes full of energy and while we rest I will tell you about the geological processes that were giving life to the hills of the Quebrada de Humahuaca. My service is to provide you with security first, but I make personalized walks at the time and demand of those who contact me, I try to avoid large groups as my service loses quality. My walks are on peripheral footprints to the town of Purmamarca since the idea is to connect with nature and avoid contaminated roads. I will tell you about native medicinal plants, local history and our beliefs.

Where you'll be

We will travel landscapes where the only ones to walk those paths will be us. The sun, the wind, the shadows of the clouds will be our companions. We will be alone in a geological framework of more than 600 million years enjoying beautiful multicolored mountains. The landscape where we will walk is not marked as a mark of free access, but we try to preserve it from mass tourism and therefore we seek it to be exclusive.
