Nevado de Toluca

Pre Symposium Expedition

The Nevado de Toluca is a stratovolcano in central Mexico, located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Mexico City near the city of Toluca.

It is generally cited as the fourth highest of Mexico’s peaks, after Pico de Orizaba, Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl, although by some measurements, Sierra Negra is slightly higher. The volcano and the area around it is now a national park.

Outward Bound Americas’ Staff Symposium 2020

Corral de Piedra

Outward Bound Americas’
Staff Symposium Destination for 2020

A nature reserve and one of the most beautiful, imposing valleys within the highland region of the State of Mexico. It’s approximately a 2.5hr drive using our transit from Mexico City.

Corral de Piedra is surrounded by wooded mountains that harbor huge rock monoliths, these monoliths look a bit like a large corral if you have a good look, hence the name. The reserve is home to some of the highest trees in the country, predominantly  Ocotes and Oyameles.

This is a mystical and abundant site for us, it’s the cradle of the springs and rivers that nourish the ‘Valle de Bravo-Amanalco’ hydrological basin, resting place and an important destination for the Monarch Butterfly.
