Iztaccihuatl Summit

Climb this emblematic mountain! Enjoy the magnificent landscapes which we will be able to see during our ascent and the satisfaction of challenging yourself to arrive at the third highest point in Mexico.

Day 1: We will leave Mexico City for the Paso de Cortes where we will register and go to the Altzomoni hut. We go for an acclimatisation walk to the first pass on the mountain before returning to the hut to eat dinner and an early sleep.

Day 2: To will start for the summit at about 2am to arrive there around midday (5,220m). There, we will enjoy the views before returning to the hut and transport back to Amecameca for a highly deserved, traditional, hot meal.
