Earth : North America : Central America : Honduras : Honduran Highlands
Honduran Highlands is the central upland region of Honduras.
This region spans the central spine of Honduras from the border with Guatemala in the west to Nicaragua in the east. It consists mostly of mountain ranges and aside from the area in and around the capital, Tegucigalpa, is sparsely populated. This is especially so in the east of the region which is very remote indeed.
The key attractions for travellers are notable Mayan ruins and some charming old colonial hill towns.
