Iztaccihuatl reach

The name

"Iztaccíhuatl" is Aztec for "White woman", reflecting the four individual snow-capped peaks which depict the head, chest, knees and feet of a sleeping female when seen from Mexico City or Puebla.

Iztaccíhuatl is at the north of Popocatepetl, to which it is connected by the high altitude Paso de Cortes.

Archaeological evidence suggests the Aztecs and previous cultures climbed it previously

The first recorded ascent was made in 1889, but the aztecs climb before though . It is the lowest peak containing permanent snow and glaciers in Mexico.


Iztaccihuatl volcanoe mind in aztec Iztacc: women and and huatl: White "White women" , for the aztecs Iztaccihuatl was the Popopcatepetl wife.
