Pico del Águila

In order to reach one of the highest points in Ajusco, El Pico de Águila (Eagle Peak), we will start our walk from the Alpine youth hostel . Then we will go through the woods where will be able to see the enormous pines that grow there as well as the wild life that lives there.

Later we will come to a flat area from which we can admire the summit towards which we are heading.

We will walk towards the ridge that leads to the summit with wonderful view of Mexico City along the way.

Feeling the fresh air on our faces and the emotion of being near the summit, we will continue upwards to arrive at the Pico de Águila where there will be waiting for us a delicious and very well deserved hot breakfast.
