Tepozteco, Tepoztlan

(4.5/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • It is worth to reach the pyramid! The ascent is intense, carries clothing and comfortable shoes to be the only thing that worries you keep breathing: P

  • Each step that up is worth it. The journey is an adventure and allows you to prepare for the arrival at the top. The view of the city is simply glorious. Whenever I visit Tepoztlán Tepozteco I climb.

  • Nice ride but unfortunately I could only do it on Sunday and was too much people who walked towards the Tepozteco.
