Places in Guatemala: Nebaj - Juwel high among the Cuchumatanes
High among the Cuchumatanes lie the Ixil Maya village of Nebaj Quiché. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful, and the local people, remote from the cultural influences of modern urbanity, proudly preserve their ancient way of life. Nebaj and the surrounding villages were perhaps the most affected area during the civil war of Guatemala, where thousands of indigenous people lost their lives in brutal ways.
