Looking for the ultimate Mexican mountaineering adventure? Then this 11-day expedition is for you. Follow us and reach the top of Pico de Orizaba, Iztaccihuatl and La Malinche!

First, we will start by going up La Malinche, the 6th highest mountain in Mexico. At 4,420 m (14,500 ft) above sea level and with very little snow year round, this summit is ideal to begin our acclimatization process. Then, on the following days we’ll enjoy some more acclimatization hikes  before ascending Iztaccihuatl (5,220 m/ 17,130 ft). Also known as Izta or Mujer Dormida (sleeping lady), this volcano is the third highest peak in Mexico. Finally, after reaching the top of these two amazing Mexican volcanoes, we’ll end with Pico de Orizaba, the highest mountain in the country. At 5,610 m (18,400 ft), this striking volcano makes for an excellent first  high altitude experience. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

We’ll may split this expedition into eleven days in order to reach the top of these three amazing volcanoes in the best possible conditions. However, this program’s length can be reduced according to each participant’s physical condition. Even though no prior mountaineering experience is required it’s essential to be physically fit.
