    Pico de Orizaba - is the highest point in Mexico and the third highest mountain in North America located here and a seventh as well . Another popular peak Iztaccihuatl is also rising impressively above the central plateau. The ascents to this volcanoes are the most attractive climbs in Mexico. The expedition provides a fantastically rich experience for the advanced beginner and intermediate climber. This is non-technical, straightforward glacier climbing.
  • Description Edit •  Add / Share you knowledge with mates

    Relatively young mountain range of active and dormant volcanoes. The range is high, with 3000m/10,000' peaks relatively common in most areas, but due to either low latitude or low rainfall, there is not much snow all year long and no glaciation outside of the three highest volcanoes of the Neovolcanica.
  • Location Edit •  Add / Share you knowledge with mates

    Located in south-central Mexico from the western to the eastern coast between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. The Mexican Plateau lies to the north.
