As others have mentioned, the climb up can be arduous ... but that depends on your fitness level and, to some extent, your choice of footwear. I was pretty amazed at the lack of forethought in some folks' choice of shoes. Yes, it takes anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to get to the top depending on your fitness level.... More

The climb to the top of the mountain is an absolute must. The whole experience is beautiful and the view from the top is breathtaking.

Overall it was a great family time, a bit demanding but totally worth it. Nice little pyramid at the top and totally worth view of the village and surrounding nature.

Really enjoyed the hike up this mountain. It wasn't too difficult. Once you get to the top, if you want to go up to the pyramid you need to pay $50. It's worth it for the view more than seeing the pyramid which is pretty much in ruins and quite small, so it's hard to walk around, particularly as a... More

We climbed slowly to the pyramid. The view and pyramid are well worth the effort. Bring lots of water, and maybe some energy food.

The climb to the temple is the equivalent to 120 stories in a sky scaper. The stones are uneven and the footing slippery when wet. I am 60 and in just OK shape and it took me 1.5 hours to climb. Worth it for the views. My thighs still ache three days later. SO glad I made it. Lots of... More

I had a few days to kill in Mexico city so decided to go to Tepozteco. Definitely worth it for a night and to climb to see the pyramid. The ruins themselves aren't up to much but the views are stunning. It's easily accessible and you can walk from anywhere in the town. There are signs on the main Street.... More

Beware, it is all stairs so pretty challenging. The way down was far easier than I thought! The weather was nice and warm even in the beginning of January, so bringing water is a must. The hike is mostly under charming vegetation. We met mostly local people and few tourists. Were impressed with a grandma and some children that made... More

Excellent place surrounded by nature, lots of trees on the way up which makes it easier to climb. The climb can be difficult, but follow your own pace and it should be fine. There were families with children and senior people.

It goes from Tepoztlan village at about 1700 meters up to a small pyramid located at the top of the Tepozteco at about 2400 meters. It's a nice hike inside a sub tropical forest. Warning: Many stone steps are positioned un evenly, so the path may be slippery, especially for people with no mountain training and small children trying to... More
