Join a certified mountain guide to enjoy an easy climb to reach the summit of La Malinche mountain (4.461 m). Enjoy stunning views and a bit of rock climbing too!


Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt

1 Day




* 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!

What people are saying about E-S Latam Adventure Guides



We wish we could have Simon as our guide on every trek we do. His mountaineering experience and extensive knowledge of the area was impressive and definitely enhanced the trek for us. On top of this, we got along great with Simon and appreciate his easy going personality and sense of humor. We will definitely request Simon as our guide for the next hike we do from El Chalten!



Thoroughly recommended. Daniel is an excellent guide and we had a great day out.



This was a fantastic mountaineering trip to Ecuador. The altitude was a bit of a challenge, but Ramiro did a great job with the acclimatization schedule leading up to the taller mountains. Overall, this was a challenging experience given the altitude of the climbs as well as the back-to-back climbing of four mountains. I would highly recommend this excursion for anyone who wants to experience a fantastic country/culture as well as someone who wants to gain some nice experience mountaineering!



Fredy Tipan is like a superhero of the outdoor world. He knows absolutely everyone, has climbed and guided in the most epic of locations all around the world, knows the mountains like old friends, and really loves what he does and who he does it for. Our trip was completely messed up after an issue with our airline tickets. We weren't going to be able to leave until a week after our planned departure which jeopardized our entire trek with Fredy. We didn't expect him to take any sort of responsibility in replanning as it was our mistake that caused the airline issue but he absolutely did. Within days he rearranged the entire trek so that we would be able to summit all our desired peaks without cutting the days down and without changing the cost. He is a class act and an incredible guide and I'd say my husband and I both consider him a friend as well. We will definitely be booking another trip with Fredy Tipan and recommend him to anyone looking for the real deal in outdoor Guides. Thank you, Fredy!


Amazing short but exciting climb to a summit with outstanding views. Perfect acclimatization peak for the bigger Ecuadorian volcanoes, with a cozy hut and a nice approach walk. Fredy was fantastic, thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!
