Volcán Tajumulco was declared a protected area in 1956. Trips up the mountain can be arranged by various groups in the city of Quetzaltenango. Typically groups will begin the climb early on the first day and camp at a site approximately 150 meters below the summit. This allows for acclimatization to the high altitude. The following morning the hikers can summit without packs. Views are variable, the peak is frequently engulfed in clouds and conditions are extremely windy.
