Situated in one of the northern states of Mexico (Chiapas), Palenqes famous for its Mayan ruins in the jungle.




Lots of climbing in the tropical heat.


There are 100s of ruins spread over 15 sq Kms.

A inscription on the stairway in House C mentions the birth of Pakal II (603AD) and a war that he waged against the Pomona.
