Expedition El Mirador - Great Pyramid La Danta (Tour Spanish / English)

It was one of the most important Mayan cities in the late preclassic which is characterized by its monumentality when built, this can be clearly seen in one of the pyramids of the site and the largest in the Mayan civilization, the great Pyramid "La Danta" surrounded by a green sea of dense and virgin forest at the four cardinal points.

Our Nun Bak Trek to the Mirador is 5 to 6 days to visit Tintal, La Muerta, La Florida, Wakná, Nakbé and one of the most important and well-known cities in the history of the great Mayan civilization, El Mirador.

We will walk in the middle of the Jungle for 6 to 9 hours a day along a path mostly without heights or mountains since we are at 180 meters above sea level, a trek suitable for all audiences with resistance to walking more than 10 kilometers a day at a moderate pace.

In this experience we have the opportunity to see diversity in flora and fauna of our country Guatemala, Mayan cities lost and devoured by the dense jungle of Petén
