The tour 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.
