In the tropics, such as the Western Highlands of Guatemala, cloud forest exists at the higher elevations. Within the cloud forests the tree varieties consist of broadleaf species and coniferous forest. One example of a tropical montane forest is a cloud forest, which gains its moisture from clouds and fog.  Cloud forests often exhibit an abundance of mosses covering the ground and vegetation, in which case they are also referred to as mossy forests. Mossy forests usually develop on the saddles of mountains, where moisture introduced by settling clouds is more effectively retained. The indicator species for the lower montane forest are the ponderosa pine and the Jeffrey pine, black oaksugar pine, Spanish cedar, and white fir.

Tour starts and ends in Panajachel.   $70 per person. (2 person minimum) Meals & refreshments not included.
