Ascent Trip Report

Walked from Mr. Mullet's Hostel near the Panajachel Pier to the trailhead, paid the Q100 fee, then hiked for 2-3hrs to the top. A guide insisted on walking us through the first part of the trail (about 20minutes) - there are two turnoffs that might confuse you. No "fee", just tip him a few Quetzales. We started too late (9am), so the top was surrounded by clouds and we didn't have a view of the lake - start as early as possible! Descending took 1.5hours~
