What you'll do

We’ll start our trip in CDMX, heading towards the state of Morelos, in Tres Marías we’ll take the road to the National Park Lagunas de Zempoala, that will offer awesome landscapes of forest, lagoons and mountain. We’ll park the cars close to the main lagoon, called Zempoala, where the Mexican food restaurants are located, and from there we’ll start our hike towards Mount Alumbres. To reach the summit we require achieving a route presenting 600m elevation gain and a total of 13 km. During the hike we’ll have time to take photographs from the various lookouts and after we summit we’ll enjoy our lunch at the top of Mount Alumbres. For the descent we’ll take a different route to visit the Lagoon Tonatihua. We’ll have time to take photographs. On our way back to CDMX and depending on the hour we’ll choose a restaurant for dinner. Finally we’ll head towards our meeting point in CDMX.

Arturo

I’m a certified adventure guide under the Mexican NOM-09-TUR-2002. I’m an avid hiker and I feel passionate about showing our beautiful Mexican mountains to others. I love to explore routes in many different mountains, from the warm Tepoztlan with its magnificent lookouts to the imposing snow-capped north face route of Pico de Orizaba that offers the only glacier in Mexico and is one of the ten most guided mountains in the world. I’m experienced in guiding groups of Expat and Mexican hikers that share the same passion for the Mexican mountains.
