Mountain La Peña Blanca

Mountain Peña Blanca

Mountain in Guatemala

Altitude: 3.518 m

Prominence: 1.868 m
Difficulty level: Moderate


Peña Blanca is a mountain with an altitude of more than 3000 meters. It belongs to the mountain range of Los Cuchumatanes and is located near the border with Mexico, in the municipality La Libertad, in the department of Huehuetenango.

The most interesting is its panoramic view due to its high altitude, its natural landscape formed by abundant vegetation and mainly to the karst formations of interesting forms that you will see during this tour.

The best time to go on this hike is during the summer season since during winter the accesses, which are tertiary, are considered dangerous and cloudy weather does not allow a good view on the landscape.
