What will we do on the mountain?

We will start climbing through a forest full of pine trees, rocks and plants. At about 10,262 ft We will begin to observe how the vegetation begins to disappear. We will take the thousand and one photos of flora, fauna, of us, of Mexico City, the Ajusco, Iztaccíhuatl, Popocatepetl, Nevado de Toluca volcanoes. Sure, if the weather allows it. Approaching the top there is a super cool rock road where you will feel that you are practicing free climbing. Trekking to the top, slow pace with three breaks of 5 min approximately 3 hours. The next challenge will be to the top of the mountain and enjoy the view ,recognize your great effort and take more pictures. It is also optional to play dominoes, cards, dance, sing and whatever you like, don't forget to bring your favorite music. It's really amazing to be on top. But as every principle has an end, we will begin to descend happily.

We have excursions to the mountain every day either in CLIMB THE HIGUEST MOUNTAIN IN THE CITY VIP

Where you'll be

We will visit the highest point in the city (12,894 ft). The area is one of the few around Mexico City where it may snow in the winter. This mountain offers stunning views, where all of the Valley of Mexico can be seen (weather and pollution permitting), including the city and its skyscrapers, Popocatepetl, Iztaccihuatl and Nevado de Toluca volcanoes, and parts of the Valley of Cuernavaca.

Gladz was brilliant. The trip went without a hitch. Meet up and organisation was perfect. The walk was beautiful and we got a little packed lunch which was lovely. All round great day and would ask Gladz to show me more of Mexico City if I could!

I definitely recommend hiking with Gladyz. Due to rain and safety concerns, we hiked a smaller volcano. However, Gladyz went above and beyond and showed us around other parts of the city during our extra time. It was great!

Gladyz was so warm and friendly! She was so sweet by bringing us snacks, fruits, lunch and water. She knew exactly where she was leading us and genuinely cared about our experience. Would highly recommend!
