Do not forget do climb the temple. You can then admire from top beautiful Temple 1 in front of and whole Great Plaza. Temple II today stands 38 metres high and is the most thoroughly restored of the major temples at Tikal.

Temple II stands across the Grand Plaza from Temple I and it's an impressive sight. There are stairs up the back of Temple II so you can get a great view.

There is a wooden staircase in the back of the temple that you can safely climb to the top of this temple for the amazing views of the entire park.

We loved the fact that you could climb to the top of this temple and get 360 degree views across the entire Mayan site. It is not a difficult climb, circa 50 steps but well worth it for the views.

You can climb to a balcony and overlook the very well preserved area from this temple. Incredible temples in the jungle.
