Sunrise hike

Travelling for one month in Guatemala, I had the incredible experience of climbing the volcano of Acatenango. A very intense 2 days walk ending above the clouds, probably the hardest hike I experienced so far. But probably the most beautiful and rewarding as well. In the end of the night, after a cold and short sleep in a small tent, we climbed the last meters and reached the top in the early morning. The sun started to rise on one of the most beautiful landscapes I had ever seen, revealing the wild and burning power of the volcano.
