Pico de Orizaba - Highest volcano in North America and Mexico

Summit challenge Pico de Orizaba or Citaltépetl (Monte da Estrela) with its 5,610 m / 18,405 ft is the highest peak in Mexico, followed by the Popocatépetl (5,452 m / 17,887 ft), a characteristic that also makes it the highest volcano in North America. Its last eruption dates from 1846. It is currently considered inactive, although the risks involved in its return to activity remain a research topic. At the top, covered with ice and snow, its elliptical crater is the main feature (about 500 m / 1,640 ft at its widest point and about 300 m / 984 ft deep), clearly visible from the air. Climbing it is not a task for beginners. It requires a good physical and mental preparation and perfect mastery of high mountain  techniques.
