There are a number of beautiful and magical volcanoes near Mexico City. And on this full-day trip, you will get to hike to the summit of one of the most stunning: Telapon (4,065m).

Along with peaks like Popocatepetl, Iztaccihuatl, Teyotl and TlalocTelapon is an amazing volcano. And when you reach the peak’s summit, you will get to enjoy views of all of those aforementioned peaks, as well as landscape that seemingly goes on forever.

Despite the peak’s summit exceeding 4,000 meters, the journey to the top of Telapon is actually not very difficult. As a result, this trip is open to people of all skill levels. That means even families and children can enjoy the breathtaking journey to the summit!

Another great advantage to this trip is how close the peak is to the eclectic and sprawling Mexico City. Thus making this day trip a great addition to a trip you may already be planning to the enormous Mexican capital.

At the summit of Telapon there is a beautiful Catholic monument. However, the volcano’s significance goes back even further to ancient Aztec times. So, when scaling this great peak, you are not just climbing to the top of a great mountain, you are taking a trip into history dating back many centuries.

To enjoy this day long trek to the top of Telapon, just send us a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We can also take you to the top of the Pico de Orizaba, which is the highest mountain in Mexico, on this 2-day adventure.

What People are Saying about Mexico Adventure Guides-


Daniel and his partner Alex did a great job guiding us, and helping with all the logistics, especially transportation to and from the climb. Alex was a real pleasure to talk with, learn from, and show us the mountain. Thank you, for a great experience!

Daniel was kind enough to pick me up promptly at the airport when I arrived. we drove straight to amecameca and bought a few supplies, we then drove to Popo park and set up camp. Daniel gave a class on crampons, walking sticks and the ice pick and then it was time to sleep and prepare for the early morning hike start. we set off around 0330 and reached the recluso at about 15,500 feet. it was an amazing experience with wonderful views. Thank you Daniel, Alejandro and Yasmin!
