4 Mountains 10 days

In these ten days we will go up to the 4 highest mountains in Mexico: Malinche, Nevado de Toluca, Iztaccihuatl and Pico de Orizaba, the top of Mexico.

This trip is designed to have a good acclimatization and so that while we enjoy the wonderful mountains that Mexico has to offer we also get to know the most important tourist sites.

The first days we will go up to Malinche and Nevado de Toluca which are the 5th and 4th highest Mountains in the Country.

To climb these two mountains are day hikes of moderate difficulty that a person accustomed to exercising can endure without problems, all the ascents are different but with really impressive views.

The last days is where the challenge becomes really interesting since we will go up to Iztaccihuatl and Pico de Orizaba which are the 3rd and 1st highest Mountains in Mexico (El Popocatepetl which is the 2nd highest mountain cannot be climbed due to its volcanic activity ).

Iztaccihuatl is a beautiful mountain with two glaciers, one located on the belly and the other on the chest, and although it is not a very technical mountain, it requires excellent physical condition, due to the height and time it will take us to reach the top, The most impressive thing in this ascent will be the sunrise that we will enjoy going up towards the knees with an incredible view of the valley with Malinche and the Pico de Orizaba in front of us.

The Pico de Orizaba being the top of Mexico is one of the most complete mountains that our country has since it begins with a sandy area, then we will have a rocky part called the labyrinth and at the end the magnificent Jamapa glacier that will take us to the top , In this glacier is where we will enjoy the sunrise that will show us beautiful views and our goal is the top of Mexico.

To reach the top of the Pico de Orizaba you also need an excellent physical condition and to have more knowledge of the use of crampons and ice axes, for this we will do some practices when going up to the iztaccihuatl and a day before in the refuge for those who do not have experience with these tools.

Between each of the mountains to rest and not leave without having known the most important historical sites in the country we will have guided tours of these places, the sites we will visit will be: Teotihuacán, the Historic Center of Mexico City, Huamantla and Cholula.
