Description

One of the highest points on the Ajusco Volcano in Mexico, the Pico de Aguila (Eagle Peak) is a fantastic summit to reach. And, on this full day adventure, you will get to trek to this magnificent spot.

Beginning from the Alpine Youth Hostel, we will trek through the forest, where you will be surrounded by giant pine trees and in the midst of much wildlife until we reach the Ajusco Volcano. Once there, we will make our way up the peak along the ridge. Throughout the ascent, you will get to enjoy spectacular views, not just of the natural landscape around the peak, but also of Mexico City. Finally, after some wonderfully scenic trekking, we will reach the Pico de Aguila, where the views get even better! Afterwards, we will descend along the same way we ascended.

This adventure is very easy. As a result, no prior experience is necessary. Thus making it open to people of all skill levels. However, participants in this trip should be in reasonable physical condition.

Mexico City is incredible to see from a great vantage point. And, on this full-day trip, you will get to see the city from a nearly unmatched vantage point: the Pico de Aguila on the Ajusco Volcano. To enjoy the views and the experience reaching them, please send a request.

What people are saying about México

The guides on Malinche and Orizaba were very good. But there was a big problem on Iztaccihuatl. I said to each of the guides that I had there that I wasn't bothered about seeing the sunrise from the top, and would it be possible to start a bit later than the usual 1am? They both agreed that it was, one saying that the reason for leaving so early was that normally they needed to take clients back to Mexico City after the climb, and in my case that wasn't necessary as I would stay at the visitor's centre. So in the end we left the visitor's centre at 4:30am. When we got to a foresummit of Iztaccihuatl at 11am, my guide said that we had left very late, and would have to turn back. So we never reached the top, to my great annoyance. In retrospect the best option would have been to have spent one night at the refuge at 4700m before going to the top, but this was never really offered as a possibility.

I love Carlos and the team! We ended up changing our itinerary to 3 mountains in 8 days and had a great experience. I will recommend Carlos and his wonderful hospitality and working with logistics anytime!

Great experience, glad I had the opportunity to do this hikes. I was only able to summit one of 3 peaks. One of them Malinche was because the cops didn't let us go up. make sure to start really early so that won't be a problem. The cops stop everyone in bad weather regardless if you have a guide or not. Iztaccihuatl I was able to summit bc the guide Carlos make sure we save our energy for the key areas. Pico de Orizaba it was not possible, because 40 mph winds and snow or hail, the guide make sure we returned safely back to the refuge. If we were able to extend the trip by one day we could have summit, no one summit that day but those that tried the following day had much better success rate. Either way always respect the mountain
