Acatenango and Fuego, two twin volcanoes / Guatemala

Despite the opinions of Conred and Insivumeh, relayed by the local media, concerning the strong winds and a significant decrease of temperature under the effects of a cold front in approach, it seems that several groups of walkers were present this Weekend on the Acatenango volcano.


On January 8, the rescue services reported a dozen disappeared ... On January 9, Conred announces the death of 6 people by hypothermia, and several wounded transferred to hospitals.


The Prensa Libre speaks of a temperature of minus 15 ° C at the campsite near the crater, and gaps in the equipment of the hikers.

The Acatenango is the neighbor of the Fuego ... a volcano, raised like this, which culminates at 3,763 meters, can simply kill off eruption, like any mountain, if conditions deteriorate.
