There are very few experiences in life that are truly and completely unique, something you could never describe fully in photos or words, something only a few people in this entire world have done, something you could never really imagine without experiencing it…the hike to El Mirador, Guatemala, is one of those experiences.
El Mirador was one of the most important ancient Mayan cities and is home to La Danta, the largest pyramid in the world. Exploration of the site is ongoing and therefore it is constantly evolving, but much is still left to be discovered. With the El Mirador jungle trek, you embark on a 5 to 6 day adventure into the Guatemalan wilderness to visit this ancient civilization, surrounded by animals, nature, and thousands of years of Mayan history. After hiking days into the jungle with only your guide and the wild monkeys to forge a path, summiting La Danta, and watching a breathtaking sunset from the top of the world, nothing but trees in all four directions for as far as the eye can see—then you will feel what is so special about this once in a lifetime experience!
