Lake Chicabal – Guatemala

Chicabal Lake is a Guatemalan lake sacred to the Mam Mayan people. The lake is located in the municipal boundary of the town of San Martín Sacatepéquez in the department of Quetzaltenango. Since 1997, it is also acknowledged as a religious and ceremonial center, as the lake is a holy and spiritual place for the Mam Maya. In the cloud forest, you can find many endangered species of birds, like the Quetzal, the national bird of Guatemala.
