Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt
Open to everyone
Nauhcampatépetl also known as Cofre de Perote (4,250 m) is an extinct volcano in Veracruz. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to reach the summit of Mexico’s eight highest peak!
This majestic mountain is located where the Sierra Madre Oriental joins the Cordillera Neovolcanica. Its name cofre, means chest or box in english. And it comes from the shape of the peak which looks like a treasure chest. However, its original name Nauhcampatépetl comes from the indigenous language nahuatl, which means four sided mountain.
Cofre de Perote lies in the Cofre de Perote National Park with more than 11,700 ha. This dazzling park was established in 1937 as a way to protect the area. Also, it is very close to other magnificent and iconic mountains in the country, such as Citlaltépetl or Pico de Orizaba. Thus, it is often overlooked. But, once you reach its summit, you’ll understand why it is one of our favorite ascents!
Reaching the top of this peak is a pleasant hike that crosses an enchanting pine forest. Due to its location, it offers hypnotizing views of the surrounding volcanoes. Furthermore, it is the perfect way to acclimatize and prepare for bigger ascents nearby.
If you wish to stand at the summit of Cofre de Perote with one of our expert guides, don’t hesitate and send us a request. One of our certified guides will have the pleasure to take you to this marvellous place.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
