Things To Do in Mexico City – Part 2
4. Iztaccihuatl Volcano Hiking Tour from Mexico City
Tired of all the eye-level views of Mexico City? Hike up Iztaccihuatl Volcano, a 17,000 –feet dormant volcano, which is Mexico’s third highest mountain that lets tourists have a rendezvous with nature. It is two hours away from Mexico City and you need to be accompanied by an expert guide. Different hiking routes are available, based on your skill level – right from novices to professional mountain climbers. While you don’t go up right to the top, you will only fall shy by a few thousand feet. You may climb as high as 13,800 to 15,800 feet, getting close to the permanently snow-covered peaks and glaciers. As you climb up, revel in the beauty of the ever-changing landscape, which includes seasonal snow and a diversity of flora. Your rewards will include rarely seen views of the Popocatepetl (also known as ‘Smoking Mountain’, an active volcano) and the Valley of Mexico below.
