North American Friday: View from Koba Pyramid, Yucatan

Have you ever dreamed about reliving the adventures of Indiana Jones and climbing an ancient Maya pyramid? While the popular pyramids at Chichen Itza are closed for climbing, climbing is completely legal at some other Maya ruins in Yucatan such as the huge Koba pyramid!

That's a great photo! It must feel pretty amazing to clime these ancient pyramids. It's definitely something I would want to do at one point :)


@valth Climbing the pyramids was amazing indeed! But the funniest thing was less-photogenic view a few metres from where I took this photo looking down on the hordes of tourists struggling on their way up 😅


Hehe, I can imagine that ;)

Hola @jppphotography
Debes haber realizado un ejercicio estupendo para la toma. De excelente calidad. ¿Cuantos metros alcanza la pirámide?
Al menos 40 ¿Cierto?
Saludos y Gracias por el post


@reinaldor No se, pero paracece muy alto durante la ascension!

Congratz, your post has been resteemed and, who knows, will maybe appear in the next edition of the #dailyspotlights (Click on my face if you want to know more about me...)

Hi, I’m sorry to hijack your post but I will do this only once and it’s just to tell that you have been selected for my brand-new directory. As not everybody is checking out mentions, I think this is the best way to make you aware of it.
You can read more about this new initiative here and I would greatly appreciate your feedback about this concept.
If you think it has some added value it would be great if you could resteem the post to make more people aware of it.
Also, if you don’t want to be mentioned on the directory, just leave me a comment and I will delete your profile from the website.
Thank you very much for reading!
