Climbers and non climbers are welcome to explore this extinct 52 million year old volcano just 35 minutes south of Mexico City (DF)!

Located in the Cumbres del Ajusco National Park, the Ajusco Volcano (3,930 m /12,894 ft) is the most frequently climbed summit in all of Mexico. Also known as Malacatepetl, this summit is visible from any point in the city and is surrounded by beautiful Pine and Oak forests.

During this 8-hour hiking tour we’ll explore Ajusco’s surrounding forests and ascend its rocky trails. Once at the top, we will marvel at the breathtaking views where on clear days you can see Izta (‎5,286 m), Popocatépetl (5,426 m) and many other amazing volcanoes. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to practice some rock climbing and rappelling.

This program is perfect for those who want to learn about the amazing world of climbing and are prepared for their first volcano ascent. So, if you are up for the challenge then send your request and I will be happy to lead you on this unique journey!

Great trip - Alvaro and the boys took care of everything for my wife and I during the Trilogy/Triple Peak Trip! Food, transports, tents, gear - all went well. Gustavo, Meesh, Abrahim, Dani, and Oscar were awesome guides and got us there and back. They even helped with a flexible itinerary to help changes in our party\'s schedule.

The guides are very cordial and receptive, really experienced. The prior aclimatization was not enough, I recommend at least 3 days of aclimatization for those not experienced in high mountains. Thanks a lot for the team of 3summits!
