Temple 5 at Tikal in Guatemala

Would you climb up here? As my sister explains:

This is Temple 5 at Tikal. We climbed 3 and 4 but not 5. The stairs are extremely steep and narrow and much more like a ladder than stairs. We were very tired from climbing Temples 3 and 4 and didn’t feel much like dying. Coming down looked even more scary than going up.

    I avoided climbing Temple 5 for the same reason. Those stairs are scary.

    Yeah, there was a young fit looking couple who had already gone up – they told us they wouldn’t do it again – that made up my mind!

    I climbed it and all the others. And so did my parents. You missed out on a spetacular vista!

    I hope the next time you have the chance to experience that kind of beauty you don’t pass it up.

    A climb not to be omitted. I’m seventy years and had no trouble with this climb.

    So, ENJOY
