Traverse to Todos Santos Cuchumantan

There's a long grinder of a climb from the Huehuetenango valley up to the top of the plateau know as the Cuchumantanes.

These are Central America's largest non volcanic mountains. Just so happens that they are also criss crossed in mountain bike trails.

On the ridge the views are 360 huge panoramas and the trail winds it's way up to "el paso de La Ventosa" or windy pass.

From the pass the trail rolls down passing age old communities where life seemingly hasn't changed much over the past hundred or so years.

This trail was the old super highway connecting farmer to farm and merchant to market.

There's a paved road into town these days leaving this trail to the mountain bikers.

Pure bliss
