Doyle’s Delight, the country’s tallest peak. Nameless until 1980s and not known to the general public because of charismatic, but 13ft lower, Victoria Peak, the mountain is still hidden in the very heart of Maya Mountains right on the border of Toledo and Cayo districts. Over the six days you will hike 84km with loaded expedition packs. That represents 68 hours of moving. Doyle’s Delight summit is a vast area nearly 300m long and a good 100m wide. The vegetation and the soil changes daily dramatically compare with the ridge top. You will pass canyons, can spot massive and tall mountains on your way to Belize tallest peak. This is another world — a green, dripping, dark tapestry where rivers disappear underground, howler monkeys roar from the treetops, thousand- year-old Mayan temples await discovery — and ticks, chiggers and flesh-boring flies buzz and bite. For some of you will that be the hardest 6 days of your life.
The southern Maya Mountains are largely unexplored, and for good reason, the limestone topography is extremely rugged; overland travel requires carrying heavy packs over rough terrain with no established trails; daytime temperatures often reach 100 degrees. The Southern Maya Mountains, found in Belize, are known to have the greatest diversity of flora and fauna found in the world. Biologists refer to this region as the “green paradise” of the rainforest in Belize. Get ready for one of the world’s most punishing jungles. Your life will focus on the very basics: shelter, fire, water and food.
