The Jungle Canopy from the top of Temple V, Tikal

The World > North America > Central America > Guatemala

  • Like / unlike

  • thumbs down

The vertiginous climb up the precipitous northern face to the top of Temple V, at 57m high the second tallest structure at Tikal is not for the faint-hearted - not really attempted as access is actually via a wooden staircase to the right of the temple itself - a bit rickety but entirely safe.

The towers of Temple I and II could be seen piercing through the thick jungle canopy from here.
