Guatemala 3 - Volcán Santiaguito Camp

  
Guatemala
9. May 2013

The very tough and demanding 2-days hiking trip from the small village of Llanos del Pinal to a camp near the active volcano Santiaguito.

Extreme climbs and descends with a 15 kg backbag,  8 hours of heavy and continous rain, a beautiful night with red lava going down the moutain slope and a terrific morning with great eruptions of the volcano!

Total number of pictures: 20
