We will leave Mexico City going towards Malinzin where we will start an incredible walk crossing a beautiful conifer wood to arrive at a mountain meadow where we will be able to see our objective. Climbing the side of the mountain now visible, we will find magnificent landscapes with the imposing Pico de Orizaba to our left and, to our right, the twin volcanoes of Popocateptl and Iztaccihuatl. We walk along the ridge of the mountain to reach our objective of the summit, the fifth highest mountain in Mexico at 4500 meters above sea level. There we will eat our lunch before descending back to Malinzin where we will enjoy a lovely meal.
