This year was no different, a total of 20 groups, 168 individuals, were able to successfully summit the majestic Victoria Peak. Taking on the challenge this year was Dr. Henry Anderson, a former Belize Defence Force soldier and author of “The Son of Kinich” and “Sisimito”.

Dr. Anderson has contributed an account of his journey and the history behind his desire to take on the Victoria Peak challenge. Please enjoy his captivating story entitled “Journeys of The Jaguar Warrior”.
