You will be close to the foot of the dormant Iztaccihuatl Volcano, also called ‘The Sleeping Woman’ or ‘White Woman’ for the four snow-capped peaks that resemble its popular names. You’ll need the energy for your 3-hour ascent up the mountain!
Continue your journey by car through the Valley of Mexico, a highland plateau located in the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt. Your guide will drive you through Paso de Cortés, a mountain pass named for the 16th-century Spanish conquistadores who crossed on their way to Tenochtitlan.
When you reach La Joya, begin your ascent up the volcano, starting at an elevation of 12,000 feet (3,700 meters). There are several hiking routes toward the summit for a range of skill levels – from novices to professional mountain climbers; your guide will lead your group up an intermediate-level path for both beginners and those with more experience to enjoy.
As you climb, admire the stunning and changeable landscape, including seasonal snow and a diversity of flora. Enjoy the stillness and quiet serenity of your surroundings, which add an extra touch to the breathtaking views of the Valley of Mexico below.
Depending on the comfort of your group, you may climb as high as 13,800 to 15,800 feet (4,200-4,800 meters), getting close to the permanently snow-covered peaks and nearby glaciers. Catch breathtaking views of Popocatepetl, also called ‘Smoking Mountain,’ an active volcano south of Iztaccihuatl.
Your guide will ensure adequate time to take pictures, enjoy the panoramic vista or simply reflect on the tranquility of the mountain landscape. When you’re ready, prepare for the descent and enjoy a delicious lunch (own expense). Choose from a menu of quesadillas, tamales, birria (spicy meat stew) or other delicious dishes. After satisfying your appetite, return to Mexico City with your guide, arriving at around 6pm.
