Semuc Champey Guatemala

Image
Semuc Champey "one of mother natures paradises"  I started and booked the tour from the town of Coban about a 2 1/2 hour drive. Semuc Champey which means "Where the river hides under the earth." Is a natural limestone bridge, under which passes the Cahabon River. On top the bridge is a series of 6 stepped natural turquoise pools.

Wash day
Start of the walk to the pools
Waterfalls from where the pools water joins the Cahabon River


Water running in to the next pool
Cahabon River before it enters under the pools
A view from the lookout "El Mirador" after climbing the trail above Semuc Champey and gazing down upon the series of 6 cascading turquoise pools, deep in the jungle. Underneath the pools, runs the underwater Cahabon River. The pool's water is feed by the rainwater that trickles down the small creeks from either side of the valley and not by the Cahabon River
Great for a swim after a hike to "El Mirador" on a hot day.…
