A Mexican Summit

By Linda Tancs

At 18,491 feet, Pico de Orizaba is the highest summit in Mexico and the third highest in North America.  Known as Star Mountain by the Aztecs, its permanent mane of snow and ice attracts novice and professional mountaineers the world over.  Fly into Mexico City, Pueblo or Veracruz.  From there you can take a taxi, private driver or bus to Tlachachuca, a village at the base of the mountain, and begin your adventure.
