The roads on the Los Cuchumatanes, Huehuetenango, Guatemala can at times be above the clouds. This photo was taken near Páquix, Huehuetenango.

Even though Guatemala is located in the tropics, most of people actually live on the highlands, Altiplano as we call the high lands here, thus enjoy of temperate weather most of the time, except in places so high up like in Los Cuchumatanes, where you can expect very cold and freezing temperature.

Have you visited Los Cuchumatanes in any of your trips? If the answer is no, why now pay a visit this wonderfully remote part of the Guatemalan landscape.

    I drove over them a few years ago. I liked how you could see the marks left from when the area was covered in glaciers.
