From Mexico City: 2-Day Pico de Orizaba Summit Trek

1. From Mexico City: 2-Day Pico de Orizaba Summit Trek

Depart Mexico City for Tlachichuca, Puebla, where you will take 4X4 to reach the mountain hut in Piedra Grande that will serve as your accommodation for the night. Upon arrival, go on an acclimatization walk and practice using crampons and an ice axe. Return to the hut to have dinner, prepare for the ascent the following day, and get a good night's sleep. Start your trek bright and early before dawn. By the time the sun rises, you will be well-positioned to enjoy incredible views of the valleys surrounding the Pico de Orizaba. Admire the first rays of sun glinting off the stunning glacier that leads to the mountain crater. Follow the glacier to reach the summit at 5,700 meters, the highest point in Mexico and the third-highest in North America. After enjoying the views at the summit, you will descend to the hut where your transport back to Tlachichuca will be waiting for you. Once there, eat a restorative meal before returning to Mexico City.

What people are saying about Veracruz (State)

Bernardo was an excellent guide. We were waited on hand and foot by him and a driver/cook from the pico climbing hostel in tlachichuca. He was kind patient and very accommodating to our needs and pace on the climb. He was very knowledgeable and made sure we were safe at all times. Would not have made the summit without him. Please be advised this is a difficult climb due to the altitude especially if you have never been that high. We acclimatized a week in Mexico City as well as hiked nevado de Toluca first and still felt the effects of the altitude. Highly recommend don’t know why people pay American guide companies thousands of dollars for this.

The experience was just amazing and I strongly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about it. Keep in mind that the summit is challenging, however, with Carlos as my guide I managed to make it. He made sure to choose a pace that was suited for me and provided everything from food to guidance to answers to all my questions about the hike, the history, and so on. Thanks for that! Overall a great experience.

I had a fantastic experience with Mauricio that I will never forget. He was patient and encouraging in guiding me to the summit of Orizaba while making sure I was safe and not experiencing altitude sickness. Keep in mind that this is a VERY challenging experience due to the high altitude, and it shouldn't be attempted without acclimatizing through other high altitude hikes

I had a slightly different circuit because of the coronavirus but despite this I loved discovering this beautiful place, incredible views, the guide was great and taught me a lot of things, it was a wonderful day I recommend without hesitation!

A great experience from A to Z! Unlimited Experiences is a great organization! We were well informed and picked up on time! At the end we received a present, that was a great surprise! I would be happy to recommend this experience to everyone!
