There is a Mexican legend which tells that once upon a time there was a warrior whose name was Popocatepetl and a princess named Iztaccihuatl, and both fell in love; her father promised her in marriage if Popocatepetl would come back victorious from battle. At his return, he found that Iztaccihuatl had died, so he carried her to the top of a mountain where the gods turn her into a volcano (this is the reason why she is called the sleeping woman). Popocatepetl fell asleep next to her and was turned into a volcano as well.
Your first stop is the town of Tlalmanalco, where you will have a chance to enjoy a breakfast with quesadillas, tamales or birria (in case you haven’t tried it before). The next stop is at the famous Paso de Cortes, right in between the two volcanoes. Although there are different intervals for different aptitudes, an intermediate route will be taken. According to the physical condition of the participants you may climb between 13,700 and 15,700 ft, to an area near to the snow-covered summit. Do not forget to bring your camera, comfortable shoes and warm clothing; the experience will be an unforgettable one!
