near Las Conchas, Salta (Argentina)

Beautiful walk from route 68 within Quebrada de las Conchas. First half of walk can be described as how a giant would feel walking though the Grand Canyon - far smaller scale but still beautiful. Once you break through the canyon you’re met with stunning views down onto a plain with colourful mountains al around. Descend onto the plain and you can walk as far and in whatever direction you please so walk could be significantly longer or a few km shorter. Walking is easy throughout- the ascents and descents are easy. Also no crowds (didn’t see anybody else while completing). Thoroughly recommended

    Amazing trail that ends overlooking a valley with a extensive colour palette. It is worth descending into the valley.
