09:55Garganta del Diablo
Trail to Devil?s throat
Price: 3P for entrance
Distance: around 3.6km one way
Go to the Iron Bridge which leads to Pukara. A big sign says Garganda del Diablo points to the left, follow the road. At the first sign, turn right if you walk, turn left if you drive....
As you walk you see an intersection, one goes up, another goes down, go up. If you are still driving on this walking path, you are screwed... time for U-Turn.
Walk about 1.5 hr, some uphill, until you see the sign Garganda del Diablo, here is the place they ask for 3 peso entrance fee... I don't think they are official, if you don't pay I think you can still pass, but the "warden" has several kids to raise, consider it a charity. She is nice enough to give you a brochure (which you can obtain from the tourist office with elusive opening hour).
From there descend to the gorge, the view is astounding, the path not too dangerous. You will hit a point you can either go left or right, left to the waterfall.... down to the dam, again choice of left or right, left goes to the waterfall... at the bottom of the gorge you have to fork a mini river hundreds of time, dry season, you can probably survive with dry feet with some fancy Gortex boots or a pair of cheap sandals, wet season, better learn to swim.
