Monte Tlaloc (4,053masl) Self-guided Solo Budget Day Hike

30 Days Pandemic Summer Solo Trip in Mexico November 27, 2020 to December 27, 2020


Mexico Day 6 (Mexico's #9 highest mountain): Self-guided solo major day hike (difficult back trail) to Monte Tlaloc (4,053masl) with 1,186m elevation gain, 24km trail distance (the highest elevation gain and longest distance I have on a day hike, despite not being summitted) and DIY transportation. No national park fee and no registration fee. The mountains on the background are Mexico's #2 and #3 highest. #mexico #hiking #livealifeyouwillremember

Budget Estimate: $250 (16 USD)
How to Go: From Mexico City, take San Lazaro metro station (line 1 & B, fare $5) then walk to Autobus Terminal de Oriente (CAPU). Ask the counter for Rio Frio stop only along Puebla bus which departs every hour with 1.5 hour journey, fare costs $72 one way. On the way back, just go on the other side of the highway point area where you were dropped-off and wait for Mexico City bound buses.
Places Visited: Monte Tlaloc is Mexico's #9 highest mountain. Monte Tlaloc has difficult back trail due to its length and high elevation gain (24km length and 1,186m elevation, the longest distance and highest elevation gain record I have on a dayhike, despite not being summitted). The trail is very dusty and not well identified especially on the summit assault. No national park fee and no registration fee. No water source throughout the trail.
