  • Reach the summit of La Malinche.

  • Contemplate fantastic views of the surrounding volcanoes.

  • Go through a beautiful forest in a Mexican National Park.


La Malinche is a Mexican National Park located in the states of Tlaxcala and Puebla. 

Most of this protected area is covered by coniferous forests, where you can find a great variety of animals and plants. On this full-day guided expedition, we will attempt to summit the 4.461-meter La Malinche peak.

We will head up via the standard Las Cabañas del IMSS route. On the way, we will admire amazing views such as the Iztaccíhuatl and Popocatépetl volcanoes. After 2 hiking hours, at 4,000 m, the trees and vegetation start to disappear because of the altitude. From the tree line, we’ll have to climb an alpine terrain full of rocks, sandy terrain, and difficult slopes. Some rock climbing will be involved.

Keep in mind that we will gauge the group’s overall fitness in order to plan the best itinerary for all. A good fitness level is a must to climb La Malinche, and some prior climbing experience is advised.

So, would you like to experience a unique mountain climbing day on one of Mexico’s most stunning volcanos? Then contact us now and join us on this La Malinche 1-day ascent! We look forward to guiding you!
