Lake Atitlan is a lake in the Cuchumatanes plateau of the Sierra Madre Mountain range. It is located in the Sololá Department of southwestern Guatemala. It is known as the deepest lake in Central America. It has a maximum depth of 340 meters, yet it’s also perched at an elevation of 1,562 meters above sea level.

Lake Atitlan is a volcanic lake that was formed about 84,000 years ago by a massive eruption of the Chocoyos volcano. The eruption caused the volcano to collapse, forming a large caldera, which was then filled with water. The lake is surrounded by three volcanoes: Volcán Atitlán, Volcán Tolimán, and Volcán San Pedro. These volcanoes rise steeply from the lakeshore, creating a dramatic landscape.

The landscape of Lake Atitlan is also shaped by the lake itself. The lake is very deep, with a maximum depth of 340 meters. This depth creates a strong gravitational pull, which draws water from the surrounding rivers and streams. The lake also has a very high water level, which is due to the lack of an outlet. The water level is kept high by the rainfall that falls on the lake and the surrounding mountains. The combination of the volcanoes and the lake has created a unique and beautiful landscape.

German explorer Alexander von Humboldt once exclaimed that this is the most beautiful lake in the world. Or British-born writer Aldous Huxley wrote about Atitlan: “For me, Lake Atitlan is picturesque. It’s really beautiful on everything.”

The lake is a popular tourist destination, and people come from all over the world to enjoy its beauty and its many activities. As a center for meditation and healing with strange things, this place also has a type of celestial tourism with many mystical activities starting each month on the full moon day. Every day there is a shower in the early afternoon so the lake water is always full and clear.
