Mount Tlaloc, a non-active volcano, is part of the Iztaccihuatl Popocatepetl National Park located in the state of Mexico and close to the state of Puebla, is the ninth highest mountain in Mexico with 4150 meters above sea level. At the summit, you will find ruins of an archeological site where the Aztecs performed ceremonies offering human sacrifices, mostly children, dedicated to Tlaloc the god of the rain. Mont Tlaloc is considered the world’s highest temple site. You walk on a dirt road that goes through a beautiful forest with fantastic views. About 2.2 miles you can continue to your left on a narrow path not well maintained or follow the same dirt road to your right; both go by the side of the arroyo. The left side joins again the dirt road near the mile 3.1. At the mile 4.0 the path continues on a steepest narrow trail with some rocky sections not difficult to climb. Once at the top you can also see the Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl volcanoes in addition to the magnificent landscape in all directions.Show more

This trail surrounds the entire crater at the top. In the first two miles, the path is not difficult to walk nor too steep and is very well marked. You pass around the Laguna de la Luna (Moon Lagoon) and continue in direction to the top. The difficulty begins when climbing the peaks and walking on the rocks. At the top, the path is not marked, but you can see marks with stones that indicate the direction. About 2.4 miles you reach the highest part, El Fraile Peak. From there, you start to going up and down the peaks, one of them the Aguila Peak. The last part is less difficult to walk, with better trail markings and less rocks. Once the circuit is completed, you continue to the point where you started. The trail has some difficult parts at the top where you have to use your hands to hold on when climbing the rocks. All this difficulty is compensated by the wonderful landscape that you contemplate during the whole journey; this is an incredible trip that is worth trying. Show more

The Nevado de Toluca is one of the most visited places near Mexico City, specially on weekends and holidays. Arrive to the bottom of the crater where there are the lagoons Del Sol and De La Luna and then walk around them, it is a nice and not difficult experience. The trail is not a long distance and is ideal for those who do not want to climb to the top but they want to enjoy the impressive views of the mountains and the lagoons. Show more
