about the mountain


This is Mexico s fourth highest mountain, after the Pico de Orizaba, Popocatepetl, and Iztaccihuatl. (By some measurements, however, the Sierra Negra is slightly higher.) , and it is unique in taht one can drive into the crater of this volcano, Nevado de toluca has two summits,  the higher Pico de Fraile (Friar s Peak) at 4 680 meter





It is often called Xinantecatl, which is probably from the Nahuatl chinam(itl) 'cornstalks' + tecatl 'lord of', though other etymologies have been suggested. It is an extinct volcano located in central Mexico. This volcano has its higher summit at 4577 metres and in good weather it is clearly visible from the Mexican city of Toluca. An unusual feature of this mountainous formation is the existence of two lakes in small extinct craters within the caldera, the cold water Sun Lake and the Moon Lake. A road runs into the caldera, making this perhaps the most accessible major Mexican peak.
