Let one of our expert guides take you to the summit of Nevado de Toluca on this 2-days mountaineering trip. Discover one of Mexico’s most magnificent peaks on this private adventure.
Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt
* Stand at the top of one of Mexico’s most incredible peaks.
* Reach the summit of Nevado de Toluca with a local and expert guide.
* Enjoy unrivalled views of its two lakes at the crater in the top.
Due to the easy access and proximity to Mexico City, and the incomparable beauty of its 2 lakes in the crater, this is one of the most popular ascents in Mexico.
Reaching the lakes is quite easy. However, getting to the summit is a little bit more challenging. Although it doesn’t require much technical gear, with the exception of the days when it’s covered in snow, particularly around its rocky and sharp ridges.
Nonetheless you won’t have to worry about the technical part, specially if you don’t have previous experience. All you need is to have a good fitness level, and allow your body to acclimatize properly to the altitude. One of our expert guides will follow you all throughout this journey, to help you out and make sure you are safe and enjoying your time here. Moreover, we provide all the technical equipment included in the price. So, you don’t have to worry about bringing your own.
The route we recommend, cañada del Oslo, begins at a forest area which would lead us to the main summit Pico del Fraile. Upon arrival, we’ll enjoy stunning views of the crater lakes Laguna del Sol and Laguna de la Luna.
Then for the descent, we can take the same route, or in the opposite direction towards the lake. And for those looking for bigger challenges, we can take a route that leads to the secondary summit, Pico del Aguila.
If you wish to join this mountaineering adventure, request to book this trip today. One of our local guides will have to pleasure to accompany you to the summit of Nevado de Toluca.

The guides with 3 Summits were incredible! The company was super communicative and answered all my questions ahead of the climbs. I did the trip solo and the guides were fun and kind and I truly felt like I was climbing with experts.
Loved our guide, he was perfect for us. We felt in security with him. He has a lot of mountain experience, is passionnate about the mointains and his work, knows all the tricks and techniques and always makes sure we are going well. He is in great physical shape, so he could go much quicker than us, but he adopted our pace and never put pressure to go faster. We enjoyed talking with him, he’s open, friendly and interesting. He speaks English and Spanish perfectly. The organization was also impeccable, with quick follow-ups and regular contacts prior to the trip. All the equipment provided was in good working order. All in all a wonderful expericence, I highly recommend them.
Great trip. Highly recommend La Malinche for those wishing to acclimatize to Pico. Our guides were professional and friendly. We had a difficult moment near the top of the summit, but our guide coached us through it and we successfully summitted.
This was a great trip. Well organised and with good attention so everything went smoothly. Good to have the acclimatisation hike up La Malinche before doing Pico de Orizaba. Special thanks to Mesh (guide for Orizaba) who was very helpful and developed my confidence as well as being understanding of my relative inexperience on ice. Whole team from 3 summits were definitely there to make this a fantastic experience. Makes me want to do more.
Everything about the 3 summits agency was perfect. Transport, accomodation and food were Amazing. However, the guides were what made the big difference. They are very helpful and they know what they are doing. Their positive energy made the whole trip an unforgettable experience.
