Visiting "Lost World" is quite an experience! This is the largest ceremonial complex within "Tikal National Park", comprising the "Great Pyramid" and three other temples. The complex dates from the years 300 BC and was probably used for astronomical purposes and also as a royal necropolis. The "Great Pyramid", as the main structure of the complex, is a four sided construction, with staircases on all sides and is 32 meters high. The pyramid-temples of the "Lost World" were built with the use of the "sloping panel" technique and are known, in Spanish, as "Templos Talud-Tablero". Their features resemble those of the "Teotihuacán" pyramids near Mexico City, revealing the intense trade between both pre-Columbian cities. We did not climb up to the top of the "Great Pyramid". Too tired to endure the challenge! Enjoy!

It can e confusing to distinguish between the different temples. Don't worry about it. It is all amazing and it should be on your bucket list to climb the temples.

You may think after climbing Temple I and IV you don't need to climb up here but that would be a huge mistake. Once you are on top, the views are very nice of the jungle and you can see the tops of the temples.

All the temples are amazing but this one wasn't my favorite. Great for a photo or walk to the top. If you have limited time, I would skip this one.

In the shade: It is a great attraction. Ask for a tour guide from Gem Tours. Specifically ask for Jose Moreno. His English is like a native.
