More Info

This 3,937 m (12,917 ft) 52 million-year-old lava dome volcano overlooks the Valley of Mexico and boasts stunning views, as well as offering a respite from the city at just a short car or bus drive away. There are three routes to the top. The south side route is the easiest, the “Lodge Route” takes you to the northwest ridge of the crater, and the north side also offers rock climbing options. Climb Ajusco in a day and enjoy the wonderful environment of this unique location near Mexico City.
