Brealito and its mysterious lagoon

where is seclantas

Brealito is a place located 15 kilometers from Seclantás, is close to a river and surrounded by cordons and by the hills Luracatao and Del Refugio. A few houses and the chapel realize its existence. Its greatest attraction is a mysterious lagoon, full of strange stories and stories. The strangest of them assures that gigantic living being dwells in that eye of water. To reach it you must walk a cornice road with climbs and descents not recommended for an inexperienced on mountain trails. That's why we recommend doing it with a travel agency enabled to enjoy the incomparable beauty. There are those who choose to camp there, at 2700 masl, to try to witness the inexplicable lights that are seen in the sky of which no one has been able to explain its origin.

The Caves of Acsibi

These amazing rock formations give the feeling of being on another planet. The place welcomes the visitor with large stone walls turned into a kind of a natural labyrinth. To get to them, the only way is to walk between 4 and 5 hours. As you advance through the dry river canyon, it narrows and narrow tunnels form that end in these truly wonderful reddish caves.

Places to stay in Seclantas

At 4 km from the village is the Finca La Montevideana, a rural establishment with all the surrounding landscape. Painted hills of ochres and reds with cardons that protrude as hand placed. This hotel in the Calchaquíes Valles is ideal for overnight on a trip to Seclantás. An ideal way to live a different experience in contact with nature.
