Site Update (May 1st 2013): All weather maps have been improved to make them much more useful for climbers. Animate either temperature or weather and move your cursor to any mountain location to see how the weather is forecast to evolve at various elevations. Because of the limited space on these large region maps, we can only show this at a subset of locations. We will add much more detailed maps very soon.

Hiking Season: All year
On the southern part of Toluca we can visit a beautiful volcano with lakes inside, which is the name that the inhabitants of ancient Xinancatecatl. It has an altitude of 4632 metres.
This is Mexico's fourth highest mountain, after the Pico de Orizaba, Popocatepetl, and Iztaccihuatl. (By some measurements, however, the Sierra Negra is slightly higher.) , and it is unique in that one can drive into the crater of this volcano. Nevado de Toluca has two summits, the higher Pico de Fraile (Friar's Peak) at 4680 metres.
