Excelente servicio . Muy profesionales en todo sentido, además de que están muy pendientes de la buena preparación y estado antes y durante el recorrido de cada participante (salud, equipo, comidas, etc) son muy flexibles para adaptarse a las circunstancias que puedan presentarse y asegurar que tanto los que pueden lleguen con guía a la cima como lo que se ven imposibilitados aprovechen el máximo de su experiencia y regresen de manera segura y acompañados por un guía más a la base. Los guías son muy profesionales en su trabajo y la organización también excelente.

Best hiking agency experience so far. Professional and motivating guides, excellent equipment and very well organized. We did the 2 nights & 3 days tour to the Iztaccihuatl and we were glad to do it with 3Summits. They gave us all needed equipment (from tent to clothes to boots) for free and even brought us missing stuffs from the town when we were in the base camp. The communication could not have been better and the price is very fair for that. High recommendation!

We did a 3 day and 2 night trip on the Iztaccíhuatl and we could not have had better guides than Álvaro, Elisa and Christian - thank you so much!! The organisation and communication before the trip was nearly perfect and very professional! The food and especially the hot tea was really good as well and gave us plenty of energy. 🙂 Most importantly, we felt very secure the whole time and Álvaro was very patient with us and still pushed us to our limits so we made it to the summit!! Thanks for everything, that was an amazing experience! 🙂

Pico de Orizaba + Rappel El Boquerón Gallery
The Climb + Rappel
After summiting Pico de Orizaba you will be exhausted, but happy with your achievement, the altitude, the glacier, going through the maze, we’ll have a well deserved nigh rest and then head for this amazing rappel. It will take us about 5 hours to get there, again crossing very bad roads but this time entering a beautiful rain forest. When we arrive, we set camp, and throw all the ropes, set the anchors, show practice some techniques, etc.
Next day, in the morning, after a good breakfast, we are ready to have extreme fun. Put on your gear, check your radio and go!!! The rappel is mind blowing, the rope soon looks so thin but still a long way down… are you ready for it?
The bottom of the rappel is by the river and then just a 15 min walk up we’ll lead you to another try if you want to… as many as time allows us.
To take into consideration
To summit Pico de Orizaba you must be in a good physical condition and your body acclimatization process must be properly carried out.
Acording to your experience, your acclimatization, your time, etc. we will suggest yout the best itinerary for you to maximize your summit options.
Some rappeling experience needed.
You’re not sure how to train for this mountain? Just ask us and we’ll help you during your training.
We run locally and with full time professional guides, what means that prices are always lower than in your home country.
About our climbing team
Our guides have succesfully guided in mexico mountains hundreds of times. Of course when not working we like going to other countries to challenge ourselves both in mountaineering and rock climbing, we have experience in South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
In addition, our guides have the following international backing in knowledge and practices in high mountains:
– Training in Mountaineering and Mountain Rescue techniques taught by instructors from the AGMP (Mountain Guides Association of Peru) belonging to and with UIAGM standards (International Union of Mountain Guides Associations).
– International First Aid Certification in remote places given by ECSI (Emergency Care & Safty Institue). WFR.
In Mexico there is no official mountain guides certifications, so we do our best to catch up with international standards.
