Chamula Adventure: Trekking, Rappel & Temazcal
Come along and be a part of what Maya-Tzotzil communities have to offer. We invite you to enjoy mountain landscapes and get a taste of the indigenous people’s unique way of life, just 40 minutes from San Cristobal de Las Casas.
The tour begins at 8:30 in the morning with a road trip to the Mayan community of Pilalchen or “the land of stones and caves”, where we will pack our bags. On our trek we will learn about medicinal plants and visit sacred caves and springs. After, we will rappel down 15, 18, 20 and 50 meter walls and walk to “El Mirador”, for a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding mountain area. And if this hasn’t raised your spirits, we will end our tour with a traditional temazcal and delicious typical food of the region.
