Trekking long in Salta in the Yungas area (cloudforest) that surrounds Salta city.
In this adventure activity, participants will have the opportunity to experience the lush vegetation of the mountains in the Pre-Andes region. Will see the city of Salta and its valley from natural viewpoints.
We leave early from Salta city in a westerly direction. After a short trip by car, we get to a natural reserve where the hike begins.
The first part is a steep climb. Then we enter in the forest along old path covered with vegetation used by the few pastors in the area.
In the first part of the way, there are domestic animals living in semi-freedom. This means that have owners, but they leave them free and alone looking for food and water.
Inside the forest, hopefully we can find wild animals like Pavas del Monte, various species of birds, Corzuelas (a kind of small deer), among others.
