Would you like to spend a day hiking to the top of a famous peak in Mexico? If so, you’ll love this adventure that will take you to the summit of the La Malinche peak (4,500m).

The fifth highest peak in Mexico, La Malinche is a great mountain to climb. And, because the ascent is not very difficult, people of all skill levels can enjoy this trekking expedition. However, you should be in good physical condition.

Our adventure will begin in Mexico City. From there we will go to Malinzin. Once there, we will walk through gorgeous conifer woods before reaching La Malinche. Once we reach the peak, we will begin our hiking ascent. Throughout the climb, you will be able to see a number of Mexico’s highest peaks. Those peaks include the highest peak in the country: the Pico de Orizaba (5,636m). You will also get to see the twin volcanoes of Popocateptl (5,426m) and Iztaccihuatl (5,230m).

Once we reach the summit of La Malinche, we will enjoy a tasty lunch, while you enjoy more spectacular views. Afterwards, we will make our way back to Malinzin, where you can enjoy another wonderful meal before returning to Mexico City.

If you would like to join us on this thrilling ascent to the top of La Malinche, please send a request.

We also offer a climbing trip that will take you to the Grupo de Los Cien hut on Iztaccihuatl.
