Hike up to Tepozteco, the ancient Aztec temple dedicated to Tepoztecatl, the god of the pulque drink. Overlooking the rustic village of Tepoztlan, known for its Mezcal production, the archaeological site consists of a 10 m (33 ft) high, pyramid-shaped temple perched on a sheer clifftop. On the strenuous uphill trek to the temple, you will pass through lush green rainforest, see waterfalls and rock formations, and perhaps spot the elusive coati. When you reach the pyramid, you will be rewarded with a vista of the town and verdant rainforest below. To visit Tepozteco and other attractions in Tepoztlan, use our Tepoztlan day trip planning website.

Beautiful!! But **heads up**you can't get to the very top. Enjoy the exercise, greenery, birds and lovely nature but don't expect the vistas seen in older pics back when things were open. Steps turn into stones but it isn't terribly strenuous. Take it easy on the way down. We went at dusk on a weekday and it was nearly empty!
Very cool and full of life, vendors and great food, especially on weekends. It's quite the experience, that is for sure.rhe hike up is quite long but very with the effort.
BEWARE the pyramid is closed since March 2020 due the pandemic. Some people were really disappointed when they got almost up. The walk is nice and the nature around beautiful.
Crazy long hike to the top. It's a jungle so bring hiking gear food and water. But it's worth it once you get to the top. And try some ice cream in the little town. This town has lots to do. And plan on arriving early and leaving late. This is not a good hike for kids that are young. Bring lots of water and snacks. Remember to only drink bottle water as well. Check the weather because rain can cause flooding on the mountain. Also bring a portable charger.
This place is quite beautiful... it can be a strainius walk up but it's worth the view... make sure to take water and dress appropriately. And when you come down to try the local ice cream.
