Sierra Negrae

Hiking Sierra Negra 

 

Sierra Negra is the 5th highest mountain in Mexico (4.580 m -15.025 ft) and most of the year remains without snow. It is just by Pico de Orizaba on its south face, and even though not the smallest, it is the easiest of all the big mountain in Mexico. Great as a first touch to altitude or as an acclimatization mountain before going to the big ones.

The great views of Pico de Orizaba south route and the curiosity of having a huge space observatory, internationally built, right on the summit, make of this mountain a very interesting hike.

  • 5 star review  I am 63, I tried to climb Pico de Orizaba 6 months ago without success. I was in a group of 8 people and the guides seemed to be in a hurry to finish their job, I could not keep up with their pace. I decided to try it again, searching the web for Pico de Orizaba climbing I found Explore-Share where you can find guides from all over the world, 3Summits Adventure was the option that could not have been better, I can say there is a world of difference between 3Summits Adventure and the other mountain guides. My guide Lalo was all attention to detail, he let me climb at my pace always making sure I was in condition to continue and checking for any symptoms that could affect the climb, without his patience and experience in the mountain I could not have reached the summit. In 5 days I climbed La Malinche and Pico de Orizaba, something that at my age I could not have done it without the guides and services 3Summits provided, Karla and Lalo made it possible for me. You can take a risk and try other guides, there are plenty of them, but if you really want to make it to the summit 3Summits the best option.

    5 star review  It is safe to say this experience with Angel & Dani was truly one that we will remember for life. The whole experience was well organised, the lodge we stayed in was amazing. The climb gear itself was well provided. There is not a single thing we would complain about. The guides Dani and Angel were just amazing.

    5 star review  Successful summit of Pico de Orizaba with a group of unexiprenced climbers! Highly recommend 3 summits. Very experienced and knowledgeable of the mountain. Would not have summited without them 10 out of 10. Mesh is the GOAT

    5 star review  WGuides are the best, super helpful, always motivating me to push forward. Both mountains are challenging but the view at the top is well worth it.

    5 star review  Great trip for both Izta and Pico with 3Summit Adventure! We had an incredible experience and every detail was thought through. Great communication and we really enjoyed climbing with our guide, not only was he an expert on the mountain, he was also extremely supportive and a pleasure to be around. Thank you for the great trip.

  • 5 star review  Lo súper recomiendo. Me encantó TODO, los guías mega preparados se nota que saben, dormí en una cama en vez de en una casa de campaña eso te ayuda a descansar para el día siguiente, te rentan el equipo que te falté, la comida rica como en casa y de los snacks no te tienes que preocupar porque es mucho.

The Climb:

The route begins close to “Valle del Encuentro” almost to the end of the tree line, but still well inside this beautifu high altitude forest. The first part of the mountain will be crossing the forest untill  you reach a rocky montain ridge, where there forest ends, that will eventually, between rock and sandy ways, lead you to the wide summit and the space observatory.

The way down can be by the same route or on a much direct route going down big and fun sundy downhill. Great to have some fun like, just like skying!!

To take into consideration:

To summit Sierra Negra you must be reasonable physical condition and your body acclimatization process must be properly carried out.

Depending on your experience, your acclimatization, your time, etc. we suggest the best program scheldule for you to maximeze your summit options.

Also, if you have doubts about your level of fitness, we can send a personalized training program designed to climb mexican volcanoes so that you don’t suffer from physical exhaustion on summit day.

We operate locally and with full time profesional guides, what means that prices are always lower than in your home country.
