Sinantecatl in Nahuatl, nine mountains

What kind of mountain is Nevado de Toluca?

Its original name is Sinantecatl, which means "nine mountains" in Nahuatl.

Pico del Fraile on the left of the photo is the highest point at 4680m.Pico del Aguila 4620m on the right.

You can hike at an altitude of about 4300 meters.Although the altitude is high, hiking does not require special equipment.Leave your car at the foot of the mountain and take the shuttle bus to about 4100m, where you can get off at about 4200m inside the caldera.The view from the edge of the caldera is truly spectacular!

How difficult is the climbing route?

It is a route of 4 hours up and 2 hours down.Please enjoy the world at an altitude of 900 meters, which is about 4680 meters higher than Mt. Fuji.The climbing route itself is not difficult, but there is a steep slope of about 200m at the end, and there is a danger of falling rocks, so please be sure to wear a helmet.About 30 meters to the summit, climb a rocky area like the spear of Mt. Yarigatake.As the trail is narrow and there is a danger of slipping down, only those with mountaineering experience will be allowed to guide you.

The Nevado de Toluca has a second peak, Pico del Aguila.It seems that tourists from Japan sometimes climb this mountain with insufficient equipment, but it will never be an easy climb, so be careful not to let your guard down.It takes 2 hours one way and 2 hours to descend, but there have been reports of fatal accidents near the second peak.This is also intended for experienced climbers only.
