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.
