What kind of mountain is Pico de Orizaba?

Its original name is Sitraltepetl, which means "star mountain" in Nahuatl.It is the highest peak in Mexico and the third highest mountain in North America.We will guide you through a route that departs from the base elevation of 3m on the south face (Puebla side) of Pico de Orizaba and goes back and forth about 4000 kilometers one way to the hut at 4700m.
