Full description
Your day begins with a visit to the village of Santa Cruz La Laguna before heading high into the mountains. Hike along ancient paths that have been used by the Kachekel Maya for centuries. On this 6-hour adventure you’ll see farmers tending their maize and coffee crops, and see some of the most magnificent scenery in the world. Visit a sacred Mayan site where rituals are performed by local shamans, and make your own offering at the altar. The hike will take you up 2,500 feet above Lake Atitlan, affording breathtaking views of the lake. This rugged and remote area has had little contact with the outside world. The 4-hour walk/climb through magnificent scenery is a bit difficult, but not overly challenging if you’re in good health. Enjoy a picnic lunch along the way, or eat at a local comedor. (Lunch is not included in the tour price.) You’ll come to a remote Mayan village high in the mountains, and from this point take a colectivo, a shared van/pick-up for the last few miles into Solola. Take time to explore the second-largest market in Guatemala before heading back to Panajachel by local bus or truck.
