The normal route of this beautiful volcano is relatively easy, although rather long, so you should be in excellent physical condition and sufficiently acclimatized. The vertical gain is 1,260 meters, and the total distance is 14 kilometers.

As preparation, we recommend that you do five hours of physical exercise per week. It is also convenient to climb a four-thousander in the previous weeks.

From Amecameca we take a nice mountain road through the forest, and arrive at the Pass of Cortés, which the Spanish conquistadors used to enter the Valley of Mexico in 1519, on their way to Tenochtitlan, then the capital of the Aztec Empire. We register at the park’s office for our two-day adventure.
