High Mountain
Iztaccihuatl Portillo

On this tour we will reach the second gate, that is, 4,400 meters above sea level. The volcano is known as the white woman or in Nahuatl: Iztaccíhuatl, or woman asleep because of the shape it has. The walk lasts three hours from the parking lot, known as the jewel, to the second gate and back. The landscapes are wonderful, you can see other volcanoes and cities as long as the weather allows us.

Come, join us!
