Nohoch Mul Pyramid Coba

Nohoch Mul Pyramid Coba - Visitors who brave the steep climb up the highest pyramid in Mexico’s Maya world reap the reward of a breathtaking vista. At more than 130 feet in height, Nohuch Mul, which means “large mound” in the Mayan language, is the tallest pyramid at Coba archaeological site and in the Yucatán Peninsula. Coba, an easy half-hour drive inland from the coastal city of Tulum (one hour bus ride from Playa del Carmen), is well worth a visit. In the Maya language Coba means “water stirred by wind.”  The Maya flourished here between 400 and 1100 A.D. One of the largest Maya cities of the Classic period, at its peak the site stretched out over 50 miles and was home to some 50,000 inhabitants. Two small lakes nearby made it a desirable location. As you explore the site, wandering the pleasantly shady trails beneath the jungle canopy, keep your eyes and ears open for wildlife. You’ll surely spot some interesting tropical birds and howler monkeys. The archeological site of Coba is pretty extensive, so if you get tired of walking around in the jungle heat, you can rent a bike or hire a tricycle pedicab and driver to pedal you around. Coba was an important trade link between the Caribbean coast and inland cities. A network of ancient roads called “sacbé” in Maya, which means “white road” radiates out from Coba. They are between ten and 30 feet wide and are made of limestone. The longest sacbé, 96 km (60 miles) long, connects Coba to Yaxcuna. www.theyucatantimes.com DRONE DJI MAVIC PRO COBA PYRAMID CANCUN MEXICO. Nohoch Mul Pyramid Coba - the best aerial videos
