waterfalls and sandbanks trail


Orizaba Peak’s remote nature is just stunning as its ascending trails. Discover the natural diversity and microclimates of this volcano on this hiking trail that we have designed for you. The tour is ideal for people who exercise regularly.

We start the hike and take the same route as the Waterfall Route (Level 1) from Miguel Hidalgo in Puebla, we’ll visit 2 beautiful waterfalls that are created by one of the last glaciers in Mexico, the Jamapa glacier, in the north face of the Pico de Orizaba volcano.

After the waterfalls, we will continue climbing, and you will see how nature changes. In the mountains and volcanoes, all the trees, flowers and animals adapt to the height.
