    Finca de la Nubia

    December 13, 2018 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    ...eigentlich wollte ich ja ein Pferd mieten und - im Gaucho Stil - die Fincas der Umgebung erkunden. Leider war der Pferdeverleih geschlossen und ich musste mit einem Drahtesel vorlieb nehmen...
    Die Finca de la Nubia (unter Argentinisch-Holländischer Leitung) ist ein wunderschöner Platz, mit super Wein 🍷 und leckerem Essen.Read more

    Cascadas del rio colorado

    December 9, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    The Cascadas del rio colorado or the Siete Cascada are a bunch of 7 waterfalls on the Rio Colorado deep in a gorge near Cafayate. I had read mixed reviews about whether to take a guide there or not sonce the path after the 2nd cascade seemed to be quite hard to find without the help of a guie. But, we had the track marked on our Maps.me app so we felt confident enough to do it on our own.
    Luckily, by the time we were reaching the cascades, it started getting quite cloudy and felt a bit more comfortable with the thought of doing the trek now.

    We reached there around 3 pm and were immediately surrounded by a few villagers asking if we needed guides. When we told them we'll do it on our own they demand 20 ARS for parking to keep and eye on the car. We knew it was a free parking but we didn't think it wise to risk our vehicle for 20 ARS so we paid.
    At the entrance was a person, who seemed from the village nearby, sitting under a tree with a box saying donations and a register to note the names and nationalities of the people going in. We entered our names in the register and asked if we could go in, to which he replied we needed to give a mandatory donation of 20 ARS (10 per head). This whole place reeked of a fraud and illegal exploitation of tourists. I didn't like this at all and when the guy was a bit distracted with Hristo's entry in the register, I quickly put in 2 notes of 5 ARS and pretended we've paid fully.
    By now, it was quite cloudy and the villager told us to come back by 5:30 pm since it was going to rain later and they would close. We were very pissed with this since the trek to the last waterfall was supposed to take between 3-4 hrs and we were given just 2 hours. We anyways decided to go in now that we had paid and made up our minds to take our own sweet time. It was an open space so they had nothing they could close at 5:30 pm.

    1st 3-4 cascades

    December 9, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    The path was quite clear till the 1st 3-4 cascades. In fact I wouldn't even call them cascades, they where just water from the stream jumping over some few small rocks. The biggest one was about a meter high. The path though, was quite fun to do. We had to jump over boulders, climb through rock tunnels and cross the stream over stones many times.Read more

    5th and 6th Cascades

    December 9, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    As we went deeper into the canyon, the path became harder to find but we continued following the stream and crossing it when there was no more place to go further on that side of it. The cascades too were much bigger here. At one place, there was no further path to fo. Luckily, a local person was there who showed a path through very narrow fallen stones forming a cave/tunnel.Read more

    Into the 2nd valley

    December 9, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    The 7th and the final cascade was in a different valley than the initial one. We had to climb a ridge amd go down the other side into the valley. Here, the path continued in the same vein, across the stream many times and through rocks and caves. It was a fun trek and the cloudy sky helped keeping the temperatures down. In fact there were a few showers during the trek but it felt quite good due to the heat.Read more

    7th Cascade

    December 9, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    We reached the final waterfall at about 4:40 pm. This was a much bigger, proper waterfall. It was about 15 mts high amd was along a rock face. We stayed there for about 10 min before returning back. There was no one at the entrance or guarding our vehicle. All the fraud locals had disappeared back to their village but our vehicle had been safe.Read more

    Wasserfall-Route

    October 12, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Meine Prio 1 in Cafayate: Wanderung entlang des Rio Colorado (bunter Fluss) vorbei an 7 Wasserfällen. 😍 Dazu aufraffen konnte ich mich am ersten Tag aber nicht... zum Glück! Somit hatte ich nämlich das Vergnügen mich am folgenden Tag mit 3 Argentinern und 2 Franzosen zusammenzutun, was DAS Team der Woche gebidlet hat: unzertrennlich.

    Überzeugt dass wir den Weg auch ohne lokalen Guide finden waren Kreativität, Tierimitationen ("Sommos cabras! Sommos monos!" "Wir sind Ziegen! Wir sind Affen!") und gegenseitige Unterstützung gefragt. 😅 Trotz Alterspanne von 21 bis 41 und unterschiedlichem Erfahrungslevel (für den Team-Opa war es die erste mehrstündige Wanderung) haben es alle bis zum letzten Wasserfall geschafft und sich mkndedtens eine Abkühlung gegönnt.

    Cascadas del Rio Colorado

    December 2, 2017 in Argentina

    Meine Achillessehne schmerzt von den Belastungen der vergangenen Wochen, außerdem ist es nett hier Cafayate, sodass ich einen Tag hier bleibe. Nachdem ich die Franzosen verabschiedet habe, mache ich mich zu Fuß auf, die Umgebung ein wenig zu erkunden. Fünf Kilometer vor der Stadt soll es einen Wasserfall geben. Dummerweise mache ich das, was ich ständig mache: Ich suche mir einen eigenen Weg - der natürlich nicht zum Wasserfall führt. Über Stock und Stein geht es immer weiter nach oben, was natürlich meiner Achillessehne auch nicht unbedingt hilft. Dennoch ist es eine schöne Ecke hier. Den Weg zum Wasserfall finde ich am Ende auch, muss hier aber vorzeitig abbrechen, da es zu spät geworden ist.Read more
