A great hike and a great view.

Had a great climb and an even better meal in the market below. The pyramid itself is not that spectacular, but the view is great.

This Aztec pyramid is about 1 hour by bus from Mexico City. The hike begins at the edge of town at the gate to the archaeological preserve. From the start of the hike to the top you climb from 400 meters to 2,150 meters in just 2km. Since you are basically climbing steps/boulders the entire time, you MUST be in... More

The 1200' climb from the base to the Tepozteco pyramid feels like 1200 meters. It's a fairly steep climb and the rocks are quite slick when wet (which they often are). Wear proper climbing footwear, we saw numerous folks perilously slip sliding. We did the climb in a leisurely 90 minutes and the view from the top is worth the... More

It closes at 5, which the locals warned me about. What they didn’t warn me about was that once it closes, even if you reach the top, which I did, you will not be able to see the pyramid at all. Not a glance. There is a large spiked fence that guards some stairs that im guessing lead you to... More

Skip Tepozteco, head for the hills towering over the ruins. Get the real views of Tepoztlan and surrounding area.

This is one of the less exciting and interesting temples you'll see in your life and, on its own, not really worth the slog up the hill. But the hike itself is nice, winding through a very steep ravine for a couple miles before popping out at the top. The views are awesome, though, and the experience is what you're... More

I did this hike with family on a recent day trip to Tepoztlán. It took us an hour to reach the pyramid (from the start of the trail), then we spent about 30 to 45 mins taking in the views and relaxing. The pyramid is quite small but stunning nonetheless. Then it took us another 45 mins to get back... More

I visited Tepoztlán & the pyramid Tepozteco on a day trip from Mexico with two friends in early March. If you are getting a taxi to the bus station from your Mexico City hotel make sure you are very clear about which bus station you need to go to. Our concierge arranged our taxi & they took us to the... More

As all the other reviews say, it's very challenging steep climb for about 45min to 1 1/2 hour depends on your fitness level. It's more like a natural stair master than hiking. You should bring a bottle of water and start hiking early at 9am when they open. There is $43 fee to see temple. the temple opens at 11.... More
