Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt

1 Day

All year




* Discover the 6th highest mountain in Mexico under expert guidance.

* Enjoy the spectacular views of Pico de Orizaba, Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl.

* Improve your rock climbing and mountaineering skills.


Located in the state of Tlaxcala, east of Mexico City and north of Puebla, we invite you to conquer the 6th highest mountain in Mexico. At 4.420 m (14.500 ft), La Malinche presents the perfect challenge for intermediate climbers who want to take their mountaineering skills to the next level!

Our proposal is to approach La Malinche from the “Las Cabañas del IMSS”route, considered the “standard route”thanks to its beauty and accessibility. At 3,330 m  (10,950 ft), we’ll leave our car and ascend through a beautiful high altitude forest.

At first, we’ll walk through low and alpine vegetation and further on, we’ll continue through a sandy and rocky terrain. Along the way, we’ll admire the fantastic views of the Pico de Orizaba (5,636 m) , the Popocatepetl (5,426 m) and the Iztaccihuatl (5,230 m). Finally, we’ll practice some rock climbing and reach the summit of this powerful volcano!

Please keep in mind that all participants need to be physically fit. Also, keep in mind that we will take each climber’s experience into consideration to o organize the best itinerary in order to get to the top in the best possible conditions.

So, are you ready to join us on this 1-day La Malinche summit climb  in Mexico? Then send a request to book this trip and let’s go for it. We guarantee this will be one of life’s most rewarding experiences.

What people are saying about this trip



Yesterday I summited La Malinche with my guide Daniel. It was a great experience, and I was super impressed with my guide, and the communication with the 3Summits team. I am also very appreciative that Daniel really took the time to make sure I was safe and enjoyed the climb. Highly recommend this hike to get ready for Pico de Orizaba, or on its own! Thank you for an amazing day!



we‘ve been with Alvaro on a 1 day Malinche trip in april. Malinche in 1 day is absolutely doable, a guide to find the right way around is a good idea. Alvaro was great, really making an effort for us to be fine through the day.



Such a great day! Perfect organisation, great guide, great company, great hike! ❤️
