  • Rise to the top of the Cofre de Perote (Nauhcampatepetl) represents an entertaining activity of trekking that may well develop into family. We moved in vehicle from Perote on road paved towards the rabbit population, in this village starts a paved road that leads you to the national park entrance booth. Once you enter in a period of fifteen minutes approximate you reach the parking area vehicle where the shelter is located. In the refuge have two paths to follow: that of hiking which crosses by the so-called "Devil's backbone" and has a couple of "steps" with degree of danger as the abyss and not suitable for people who are afraid of heights (although currently already has wires to hold). The following vehicles amounting to station television and antennas. The route is between ocotales and Encino, an ecological delight the aroma and the landscape... On top the of a television station, but is allowed to ascend exisitiendo stairs and railings protections. Once at the top you will have the satisfaction of having reached the 4200 meters above sea level, although the presence of antennas and equipment of communication technology have been commissioned visually pollute the environment. To take into account:-the entrance to the Park is free. -If you decide to use the path via "Espinazo del Diablo" must wear a helmet. -Although I didn't see safety elements the area inspires confidence to existing vehicles to the television station. -In Perote have to try the sausages are delicious and if you choose an Asturian fabada better!

  • the city and perote itself is not is a tourist, but there are several places that are worth visiting such as the fortress of San Carlos, churches, farms, the laguna de alchichica (which part belongs to Perote and other party in Puebla), is it water box, but no doubt who has the biggest prize is the Parque Nacional Cofre de Perote , by Yes, as well as read it is a protected Natural Area from the 3000msnm. to get to it it is very easy, the road to reach the town of the rabbit is in good condition and well from there to the Summit there is a dirt road. Note that it is the 8th mountain most high in the country and the only one that has a road car that reaches the top. There are different altitudinal vegetation, beginning with the oyamel, then you see a transition with forest pine and finally the paramo of height, arriving at this dominate the rocky outcrops and low temperatures, but certainly also the most beautiful views! they have to go, either in nevada or rime season, or in any other season always will have a different view peroooooooo hermosaaaa, the mountain gave them the best postcards! don't forget not to leave their garbage in the forest, carguenla with you and depositenla in a container in the community. go by the way warm and carry sweets, chewing gum, chocolates or cola drink if they arrive to mountain sickness that help them much. and remember to stop awhile to look cold, air breeze and listen to the songs of birds! PD: climb the mountain walking is a challenge and an adventure! take time in the pd: consume food that sell ladies along the way (weekends only)
