Below are lists of the tallest volcanic and mountain peaks in Guatemala. This is not a complete list, yet, and I'm not exactly sure how to define "tallest" so I'll probably just keep adding peaks as time allows. There are thirty six volcanoes in Guatemala and numerous mountain peaks. For some of the peaks, I have included a link to the corresponding topographic map. Just click on the Department (State) name. Be advised, however, that these are rather old topographic maps. Things have definitely changed since these were printed. But, you should get a reasonable idea of the shape of the land and the vertical features of the various peaks. If there is a corresponding Rock or Mountain page, click on the name of the peak. More links will be added as time and maps allow. To see all the old topos, special thanks to Corax for providing the information, click here.
