Full description
On the first day of your tour, you will leave Mexico City for the Paso de Cortes. Once having arrived, you will register before proceeding to the Altzomoni Hut. You will then go for an acclimatization walk to the first pass on the mountain, before returning to the hut to eat dinner and to get an early night's rest. You will wake early on the second day, with departure for the summit scheduled for approximately 2:00AM. After 10 hours of hiking, you will be expected to arrive to the peak (5,220 meters) at around midday. Once at the peak, you will be granted with a break to enjoy the views before returning to the hut and being transported back to Amecameca for a highly-deserved hot meal.

Climbing the Iztaccíhuatl is only suitable for experienced hikers/mountaineers but is totally worth it. You should have high altitude experience and be well trained. Sometimes you reach your own limits here and only make it up with a strong will and good guides. The ascent is very diverse with steep and flat hiking trails, climbing and also passing the glacier with crampons. Since the shape of the volcano resembles a sleeping woman, small peaks have to be crossed before the main peak. The company was great and treated me well. In the end, I have my three guides to thank for reaching the summit. Thank you for that and clear recommendation.
