Hiking the Teuhtli volcano in Mexico City

In the Southern part of Mexico City we can find the amazing Teuhtli volcano, South of the famous channels and chinampas of Xochimilco, around 1 hour 30 minutes from the historic city center.

The Teuhtli volcano (in Nahuatl: venerable lord) is an extinct Hawaiian type volcano. Which means that its diameter is much greater than its height. It reaches a height of 2,710 meters / 8891 feet above sea level, serving as the geographical limit of the Milpa Alta, Tláhuac and Xochimilco delegations. Here you can make a walk or hike of around 4 hours. First uphill through beautiful fields of flowers and agricultural fields, untill reaching the base of the volcano. And then you can walk all to way to the top and around, and even inside the crater, all with astonishing views all around. We strongly recommend to go with a local guide and with a small group, to ensure access since these are private owned lands (Ejidos) and for your security. Plus a local guide can explain you all about this unique place!
