Description

Conquer the 6th highest mountain in Mexico: La Malinche (4,420 m), on this 2-days mountaineering adventure with one of our expert guides.

The route we suggest is famous for its incomparable beauty and easy access. It begins at Las Cabañas del IMSS (3,330 m) where we’ll park. Thereupon our adventure starts, trekking across an enchanting high altitude forest. At about half way through our ascent, the forest will lead us to a low alpine vegetation area. Then, we’ll reach a rocky and sandy terrain, from where we’ll get one of the most privileged sceneries of the country. We’ll enjoy fantastic views of Pico de Orizaba, Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl.

Finally, we will rock climb for a little to reach the summit of La Malinche. And once we get to stand at the top, the vistas we’ll get, will make all of our effort totally worth it. The pictures you’ll get from here will be the envy of everyone you know!

Even though this ascent is easier than the nearby Pico de Orizaba and Iztaccihuatl, it is still a challenging climb. Thus participants must have a good fitness level and a proper acclimatization process. But worry not, one of our expert guides will accompany you all throughout this journey to prevent any hazards, ensuring your fun and safety.

Furthermore, we’ll take care of all the arrangements for accommodation, included in the price, as well as all meals and water while in the mountain. We include the insurance for the summit days. And you won’t have to worry about bringing your technical gear, we provide that too.

So all you have to do is send us a request. Let us take care of the rest for you. And let us guide you to the summit of La Malinche.

I was someone with little experience. Alvaro and Maca at Explore-Share did such an amazing job helping me to prepare properly. I was able to use their equipment in cases where I was missing anything. The trip went perfectly . . . I had my own guide, so I could climb the mountain at my own (slower) pace, which I highly recommend!

Climbing La Malinche with 3Summits Adventure in preparation for Pico de Orizaba was an amazing experience. I accessed the Explore-Share site looking for guides to La Malinche and they put me in contact with Alvaro and Karla from 3Summits Adventure, from the moment they picked me up at the hotel I sensed the personalized service. My guide Alejandro not only with great personality but also with extensive experience in the mountains, was constantly checking on how I was feeling, always putting safety first but also doing the best he can do to help me reach my goal of getting to the summit. For people without climbing experience like me it is necessary to have a guide that can understand your physical abilities so he can work with you and find the best climbing pace. Having used the services before of other climbing guide companies, the difference 3Summits Adventure provides is the one that will take you to the summit with excellent service and highly-qualified mountain guides

It is safe to say this experience with Angel & Dani was truly one that we will remember for life. The whole experience was well organised, the lodge we stayed in was amazing. The climb gear itself was well provided. There is not a single thing we would complain about. The guides Dani and Angel were just amazing.

Tremendo tiempo que la pasamos. Los tres guías Danny y Alejandro fueron puntuales, pacientes y se aseguraron que mis meta fue alcanzada. El viaje sobrepasó mis expectativas y lo recomiendo!!!
