* Open to people of all levels.


There are a number of wonderful peaks throughout Mexico that you can climb. Most of them aren’t even that difficult. Moreover, they all offer some spectacular views. One such peak is the Monte Tlaloc (4,120m), which, during this full-day adventure, you will get to trek to the very top of.

Much more than just a mountain, the Monte Tlaloc is a mythical peak with huge significance in the ancient Aztec culture. At the center of the summit, you will not just be standing at the top of the peak, but at a spot, where many years ago, people gathered for ceremonies dedicated to Tlaloc, the Aztec God of Rain. There is something incredible about standing in the same place, in the same unseen footprints of people from civilizations past, and that is exactly what you’ll get to do on this trip. Furthermore, from the summit, you will also get to gaze far into the Mexican landscape, while also admiring another mythical peak, the nearby Iztaccihuatl (5,230m).

Not a difficult hike, this trekking expedition is open to people of all levels. However, it is important that all participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

To join us to the top of the legendary Monte Tlaloc, please send a request. We have no doubt you’ll have a truly memorable experience, and we look forward to guiding you through it.

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!



Bernardo was so nice and made sure that we were all safe and sound at all time. The taco place we went afterwards were so good. I had a wonderful trip that day and will definitely recommend it to everyone! Thank you!



The guides were awesome and supportive. I will absoutely be using explore share in the future



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
