  • Visit an ancient observatory at the summit of Mount Tlaloc.
  • Enjoy breathtaking views of the nearby Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl.


Tlalocatepetl also known as Mount Tlaloc (4,151 m) is a sacred site in the State of Mexico. Aztecs used it as a worship place for their rain God, Tlaloc. So don’t miss this unique opportunity to relive the Aztecs sacred pilgrimage to the summit of this majestic peak!

Mount Tlaloc lies 20 to 25 kilometers northwest of Iztaccihuatl. And it forms part of the Sierra Occidental range. Also, it is located in the Zoquiapan y Anexas National park, with more than 19,400 ha, which authorities operate in conjunction with the Iztaccihuatl-Popocatepetl Park. So it offers breathtaking views of these mountains.

Once we reach the summit of this magnificent place, you’ll understand its importance. At the top, there are still remains of an ancient Aztec observatory. Even though it currently appears as a huge pile of rocks, it still has a big importance for the people of the area and the country, as part of their living history and heritage.

Tlaloc has a big summit plateau of more than a kilometer of length, and about half a kilometer wide. It also has different crannies and nooks, along with false summits, and a mesmerizing spine. Moreover there are plenty of free climbing and bouldering opportunities, with walls rising more than 20 meters.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
