Cuatlapanga is a mountain of volcanic origin 2900 meters above sea level and located near La Malinche volcano. It is an important part of the mythology of the ancient Tlaxcaltecas. About a mile the trail continues to your left and becomes more steep and a bit rocky but will still be easy to walk. Upon reaching the summit you will find a place were locals perform religious services at certain times of the year, also you will be able to contemplate a wonderful landscapes that includes the most important volcanoes of Mexico.

It was so interesting walking this trail to the top of the Cuatlapanga mountain. The events that happened in this place in the history of the ancient tlaxcaltecas left me very surprised, in addition to the wonderful landscape that I contemplated marveled from the summit. I could see the Popocatepetl volcano releasing smoke three times, an unforgettable experience!
