Where is Iztaccihuatl :

Iztaccíhuatl is located in Mexico

México and Puebla, Mexico

19°10′44″N 98°38′30″WCoordinates: 19°10′44″N 98°38′30″



(alternative spellings include Ixtaccíhuatl, or either variant spelled without the accent) (About this sound istakˈsiwatɬ (help·info) or, as spelled with the x, /iʃtakˈsiwatɬ/), is a 5,230 m (17,160 ft) dormant volcanic mountain in Mexico located on the border between the State of Mexico and Puebla. It is the nation's third highest, after Pico de Orizaba 5,636 m (18,491 ft) and Popocatépetl 5,426 m (17,802 ft).

The name "Iztaccíhuatl" is Nahuatl 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 east or west.

Iztaccíhuatl lies to the north of Popocatépetl, to which it is connected by the high altitude Paso de Cortés. Depending on atmospheric conditions the dormant volcano is visible much of the year from Mexico City some 70 km (43 mi) to the northwest.

The first recorded ascent was made in 1889, though archaeological evidence suggests the Aztecs and previous cultures climbed it previously. It is the lowest peak containing permanent snow and glaciers in Mexico.
