Tour Details

A truly deeply epic transformative expedition to Guatemala’s most powerful, magical, and off-the-beaten-path destinations. This one is a mix of one of our signature journeys (Finding the lost largest pyramid in the world; El Mirador trek) and the best of our favorite locations and activities in our country.

We will trek to the enigmatic lost city of El Mirador, which is definitely one of the most energetic places on planet earth, cataloged as the ancient Mayan headquarters and home of the impressive Temple of La Data; considered to be the biggest pyramid in volume of planet earth (bigger than Giza in Egypt). We will also visit the one and only majestic Tikal, the beautiful colonial city in ruins of Antigua, the overnight hike to Acatenango volcano, and at last but not at least the marvelous lake Atitlan with its indigenous communities and original Mayan towns, social projects, workshops, and the San Pedro volcano sunrise hike.

This one is specially designed for real explorers on a life quest with a high taste for adventure, a deep connection with mother nature, and the magical, peaceful, and healing experience of visiting the top of volcanoes and Mayan ancient energetic sites. 

Trust us; it will leave you with stories to share for ten lifetimes…

Requirements and recommendations:

From the beginning of our journey until the end, we will not have any cell phone or internet connection (being entirely out of the modern world). We will start the day around 4:30 – 5:00 am, walking around 08 hours daily (approximately 27 – 32 km or 18 – 23 miles) with small breaks through the Mayan jungle’s humid paths with an average of 80% density and mixed topography.

-To make it successful, a professional team between expert tour leaders and local jungle survival guides are coming with us. With loading mules (for the gear, equipment, and supplies) and mules with chairs (for the explorers that might need rest). A chef in charge of preparing all the meals (3 meals per day, plus snacks and all the necessary water) and complete camping gear (tents, yoga mats, blankets and pillows, etc.)

-Tell all your friends, family, and community about it. Even if we can make this happen with at least 02 people, we recommend having this experience with a group of your closest friends because it will connect all of you on a more profound and higher level.

Follow the instructions of your tour leader and local guides. They know what they are doing. Ask them, question them, and also connect with them. They will surprise you.

– The 05 days trek to the Mirador is our suggestion at least. However, we love being in the jungle, and we are sure that you do too. So if you want, we can stay a few more days and explore more or do some extra activity. CONTACT US!

– Travel with your Heart and mind open and be receptive to all the lessons that these sacred lands have for you 🙂


Important Notes:

– No matter where you are, always travel with health & travel insurance.

-Remember that it’s a total disconnection with the modern world. We will not have any signal (internet or telephone) from the beginning until the end of the expedition and a real connection with the ancestral world where we will have a much more profound and deep connection.

Just by traveling to El Mirador, you will understand why we call it El Mirador, and you definitely won’t be the same. So now you know, because there are no words to describe this experience! Start preparing yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually for the adventure of your lifetime. What are you waiting for?

In closing, we can tell you this. We have traveled the world and done several treks. If you are into adventure, nature, ancient civilizations, sacred sites, history, culture, mysticism, the esoteric, this one will leave you with stories to share for ten lifetimes.


Got a question? No problemo! We’re here to help you with everything you need to know about us, our services, and our epic expedition.

Check out our FAQS below. If your question isn’t there, feel free to open our messenger chat and write to us or send us an email at info@guatemalascension.org

What's the average age of the explorers?

The majority of participants are young people, most commonly known as millennials from all over the world, on an average of 18 to 40 years old. But there are also many travelers of different ages who make the expedition without problems, from 12 – 15 to 70-year-old adults. Age is not limited if the person has a good physical condition.

What kind of physical condition should I have to make this happen?

It is recommended to have a good state of health and be able to walk around 07 continuous hours each day.

When to go?

The expedition is available 365 days of the year (including holidays). The best time to make it happen would be from the beginning of November to the end of June, a season in which the level of physical effort is minimal since the trails are completely dry and easy to navigate. During the months of July to October (rainy season), it is necessary to make an additional physical effort to travel in the flood and mud areas (that’s pretty funny), which constitute 30% of the route. However, it is possible to do it with a level of more significant mental and physical challenge. In this period, the presence of mosquitoes increases.

How are the camping areas and sanitary services? Do you guys provide tents?

We will sleep in jungle base camps, and yes, we provide fully equipped tents (with mattresses, pillows, sheets, blankets, mosquito nets, etc.). These camps have necessary sanitary facilities (dry toilets) and a shower space (with water collected from the rain).

What kind of food will I have?

Complete typical breakfast and dinners are included in the jungle’s basecamps, and during the trek, snacks, sandwiches, and fruits are offered. There are also alternatives for vegetarians/vegans(for which you must let us know before the expedition).

What to pack?

It is essential to carry only what is necessary for the five days of trekking in a travel (25 pounds) backpack transported on a cargo mule. The rest of your luggage can be left in the deposit of your hotel or at our offices. We recommend carrying a small backpack to transport your water, personal implements as light as possible, since you will have to take your bag during the trekking.

– All your magical and alchemy amulets to be charged at the pyramids 🙂

– Light long sleeve shirts and at least one pair of short sleeves.

– Cool pants or lululemon (no jeans) and at least one pair of shorts.

– Comfortable tennis or trekking shoes (an extra pair it’s always good).

– Sticking plasters (you will definitely use these, trust us).

– Flip-flops.

– Socks and underwear. 

– All your hygiene items (towel, toothbrush, etc.) 

– Sunglasses, sunblock, and a hat or cap. 

– Sweater or jacket for the night.

– Raincoat (in case of possible rain).

– Mosquito/insect repellent.

– Container to carry water.

– Strong flashlight with extra batteries. 

– Good camera/video recorder with extra batteries and charging devices.

Personal medications; if you have some particular condition or under certain specific medicines, let us know, and take all the medication you need for the expedition’s duration plus more. This one is a must for you to come.

– Your favorite snacks (those that you cannot leave without with).

– A small backpack to take on the trek, with your “must gadgets for the expedition.”

– The cargo backpack with the rest of your things will be transported by the mules.

– We recommend bringing the minimum and indispensable.

Note: If you are coming during the rainy season (from July to October), it is necessary to bring waterproof clothing.

What sites do we visit on the expedition?

More than 13 archaeological sites are crossed during the five-day expedition, and we stop to visit El Tintal, La Muerta, and El Mirador.

What happens if you want to make the expedition, but you don't have a group?

The minimum number of people to organize an expedition is 02 people. If you are traveling as a couple or with some friends, you have the option to decide the date of the beginning. If you travel alone and wish to join a group, you should contact us. The groups are formed without nationality or age restriction, and they are from 02 to 10 people.

What is the difference between a private and a collective expedition?

A private expedition is carried out, providing exclusive services for the group (without mixing with other travelers) since the expedition’s beginning: transport, equipment, chef, guides, muleteers, and you decide your travel dates. All services are shared with other travelers in the collective, and the travel dates depend on the expedition already scheduled.

What if I have a medical condition?

If you feel that a medical condition may affect your trip in any way, please let us know when purchasing your expedition ticket. We reserve the right to decline bookings if we feel we cannot accommodate your condition on any given tour.

What happens if there's an emergency?

We are a professional and high-quality tourism company having more than 15 years of experience doing this expedition, among many others. We have everything that we need and more to make it successful, and we count on an emergency/safety plan, and just for the record, we have never used it. As a backup, we rely upon a helicopter to come to pick us up.

Do I need to be vaccinated to make the expedition?

We recommend traveling with all your routine vaccines (that most likely you already have) such as hepatitis (A & B), typhoid, yellow fever, malaria, etc.

How is biodiversity (Flora & Fauna)?

High forest, where the vegetation can reach 35 meters high with species such as Ceiba (Ceiba pentandra), Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla), Ramón (Brosimum alicastrum), Chicozapote (Manilkara zapota), Allspice (Pimenta dioica), among many others. Low forest, with shrubs, pastures, and grasslands. Wetland areas of marsh, swamps that many animal species, especially resident and migratory birds, benefit. More than 25 species of birds, 56 species of reptiles/amphibians, 16 of fish, and countless invertebrates have been recorded in the circuit area. As in much of the Mayan Biosphere Reserve, the presence of jaguars (Panthera onca), deers (Odocoileus virginianus), pumas (Puma concolor), tapirs (Tapirus bairdii), ocelots (Leopardus pardalis), and armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus). The extended families of howling monkeys (Alouatta pigra) and spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyí) can not be missed in the trees. While in the wetlands, they are recognized as shelters of a great diversity represented by the crocodile Moreleti (Crocodylus moreletii), the white turtle (Dermatemys mawii), and the white fish (Petunia Splendida).

What is the Kan Kingdom, and why the cradle of the great Mayan civilization?

The Kan kingdom is the most important dynasty for the Maya; the serpent kingdom. The ones who created the first political State of all the Americas, the first superhighway of the world (with more than 90 km long), and the impressive Temple of La Danta (considered to be the most giant pyramid in volume of planet earth). It was believed that the Mayans most prominent achievements and constructions were related to the Classic Period (250-900 AD). However, constant research and studies in cities such as El Mirador; recently revealed that even around 1,500 – 800 BC. Ceremonial spaces of significant dimensions and astronomical commemoration complexes were already being constructed. It was changing the Mayas’ history because it was at the beginning of the civilization where the giant constructions were made. It is essential to mention that the Kan kingdom (the Serpent Dynasty) took different forms by changing its capital throughout Guatemala’s history to Mexico.
