Description

On the way to the vulcano you have to drive on a gravel road with more than 20 grade. You could go further up to the volcano which we avoided due to the muddy road and therefore spent the night on the first gravel parking lot. The night was very quiet.

Tienda with parking just before the dirt road to the entrance of Lake Chickabal.
Paid 20Q to spend the night. Awesome view over the valley and over Quetzaltenango.

The last part of the road is 1,5km of dirt road and cobblestones, and is very steep. You need a car with high clearance and a good suspension. Preferably 4x4.

Be careful when traveling in the rainy season, We had a night full of rain and the cobblestones were very wet and slippery in the morning.. even for walking!
Would definitely not recommend to drive up or down after a big rain, so plan your arrival carefully.
