The Tepepul Trail begins with a spectacular vista of the three volcanoes, the community of Santiago and the Pacific Coast.

The trail begins in Montane Forest and drops into Subtropical Humid Forest.

This is the easiest place to observe Resplendent Quetzals as well as some extremely rare regional endemics like the Azure-rumped Tanager.
