From the streets of Ajijic head for El Tepalo Waterfall (occasionally it actually has water - good luck!)where you might want to hunt for El Tepalo Geocache and enjoy a great view down the ravine. Now go west, perhaps stopping at The Saddle for a rest. Next stop: the Indian Ceremonial Grounds where the Danza del Sol is performed once a year by native peoples who come from all over Mexico and other countries. They dance while fasting from all food and water (for four days and nights!), roast inside a very hot temazcal (Sweat Lodge) and undergo a skin piercing ceremony that is beyond belief. For more info, see the classic movie A Man Called Horse.

Danza del Sol ceremonial site. Originally there were two hills here. Indigenous people worked long and hard to create the wide, flat meadow. You'll get a great view of the lake from here.

    Getting down from Danza del Sol, is a rocky path, could get slippery if raining, overall very good route with nice views and in tree shadow most of the time
