The Mayan Heartland. Bordered to the west by the 3200m+ pine forested summit of Maria Tecún and to the east by the high, rocky peaks of the Cuchumatánes. Quiché is pitted with deep, dry canyons and loaded with trails to explore.
Mountain biking in Quiché Guatemala is just beginning to explode. The area is home to cool weather, light pine forests, and deep canyons connected by a dense web of ancient Mayan paths – still in use to this day. Locals here are among the most enthusiastic riders in the country practicing a form of cross country mountain bike riding that is really more Adventure MTB with long days and epic 4000m+ days on the bike.
