Volcán Tajumulco ist ein 12.4 Kilometer langer, moderat besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Tajumulco, San Marcos, Guatemala. Er führt vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden. Die Route ist das ganze Jahr über zugänglich.

Tajamulco was an unforgettable experience that was worth the altitude. We hiked overnight but it’s also possible to go in one day (about 9 hours rt). Definitely use a local guide for safety and not to lose the path. We loved Jonathan with Kaqchikel tours, recommend to use a company with local guides. Be prepared for a wild ride both literally and realistically, from the chicken bus ride to the site to the altitude as you ascent the mountain in the morning. Chilly overnight and warm at daytime meant that we used all our layers. Definitely avoid anything cotton and prefer wool or wicking materials . Overnight at basecamp was about 32-34f. The ascent will affect people differently, one of the climbers in our team experienced exhaustion and nausea but was able to summit. Aspirin and altitude sickness pills help. Hiking poles are great too. Might recommend a helmet for the last final part of the summit which involves a steep rocky scramble, to those who get dizzy at altitude. Sunrise over the Mayan volcanoes is unmissable, and the local celebrations at the top are cherry on the cake in few days before New Years.

Not bad if you want to see some altitude in Guatemala. Best paired with an overnight below the summit so you can head up early for an insane cloud sunrise. Weather can be very unpredictable (intense hailstorm last time I was there). Highest peak in Central America, but, honestly, there are better ways to spend your time if you’re in Guatemala (Tikal, for example, on the other side of the country).

This beautiful natural feature of Guatemala is definitely worth a visit. I highly recommend doing the trip in one day as carrying a heavy back up for an overnight is not really worthwhile. The base camp where people stay unfortunately had a bunch of trash strewn about as does most of the trail. Unfortunately it seems that many previous visitors over the years do not respect this area and leave tons of all types of trash from the bottom to the top of the volcano. It took our group only about 6 hours to make the whole trip and we were not moving particularly fast and we walked around the crater at the top. If you get an early start on the hike up at around 2am you’ll make the summit at sunrise which is a site to behold. It’s quite cold and windy at night and near the summit so bring layers, hat and gloves.
