What people are saying about Mountain Climbing | Puebla



outstanding guide Mesh (and cook "heraldo?"), understanding, knowlegdeable, supportive, empathetic, safe, and great fun!



A memory for life. I was not really planning to do any hiking for my stay in Mexico, but suddenly got the opportunity for a 3-day expedition. I got help from 3summits on very short notice. I didn't bring any gear, but I could rent almost all the gear that was needed. My guide was amazing; experienced, friendly and great company. Makes me want to come back to do Pico de Orizaba.



3-Summits guide, Mesh, was great!



The guides are very cordial and receptive, really experienced. The prior aclimatization was not enough, I recommend at least 3 days of aclimatization for those not experienced in high mountains. Thanks a lot for the team of 3summits!



Great trip - Alvaro and the boys took care of everything for my wife and I during the Trilogy/Triple Peak Trip! Food, transports, tents, gear - all went well. Gustavo, Meesh, Abrahim, Dani, and Oscar were awesome guides and got us there and back. They even helped with a flexible itinerary to help changes in our party's schedule.
