Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Tepozteco and other Tepoztlan attractions using our handy Tepoztlan itinerary maker.

  • Stunningly beautiful. It was a difficult hike at times and a like of stairs but very worthwhile once you reach the pyramid. 
  • It is not the first time, and hopefully not be the last. Climb the Hill is pure vitality and reach the small pyramid is rewarding. Air, the view and the energy that feels. To the get to know the pyramid you must pay a small fee. It is not mandatory but if you want to admire the view don't it make.

  • He upload is extremely tired if not is has good condition physics, approx. 1 hour to get to the top taking in has some breaks. This somewhat neglected and dirty. When you reach the top you find a wonderful view that makes you believe that it was worth. The drop gave me fear, "stairs" are very steep
