Climbing and Rappelling Trek at Juella from Tilcara
Get your adrenaline pumping trekking, climbing, and rappelling in Juella on this full-day tour from Tilcara. Explore the region's pre-Inca ruins on a scenic hike, tuck into a delicious lunch (included) at a local home, then enjoy climbing and rappelling through the mountains. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.
Begin your tour with a 9am pickup from your Tilcara hotel. Traveling by air-conditioned bus, set out on the short drive to Juella, following a scenic route through a patchwork of fruit and vegetable plantations.
On arrival in Juella, follow your guide on an easy hike of 2 or 3 hours around the impressive Juella archaeological site and uncover the secrets of the region's ancient history. After marvelling over the pre-Inca ruins, stop for lunch at a local family home and refuel in preparation for the afternoon's activities.
In the afternoon, head into the mountains, where you'll enjoy a safety briefing and have time to practice the basic climbing and rappelling techniques under the guidance of your instructor. After preparing your climbing equipment, set off one by one to begin your climb. Depending on your ability, you will be able to choose the difficulty level, with climbs starting at 66 feet (20 meters) and reaching up to 230 feet (70 meters). The type of climbing that you will do is called 'top rope climbing' as the climber is always secured to a rope on both the ascent and descent.
After a full day adventure in Juella, head back to Tilcara, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 6pm.
