Nevado de Toluca Climbing Notes

Guillermo Vidales Reyes from MEXICO writes:

Hiking Season: All year <br/> <br/>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. <br/> <br/>This is Mexico&#39;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&#39;s Peak) at 4680 metres. <br/> <br/>You can summit this volcano with mountain guides <br/> <br/>&quot;friends at the mountain, brothers forever&quot; <br/> <br/>Guillermo (Huracan)
